As many of you may know there is currently an $8000 Tax Credit for First Time Home Buyers that was put in place to stimulate the real estate market. This significant buyer incentive program is due to expire on November 30, 2009.
The NAR and other industry groups are lobbying Congress to: extend the credit for another year, expand the incentive to include all buyers and possibly increase it to $15,000. This proposed extension and increase would be invaluable in assisting the continued recovery of our local real estate market.
We have been asked to assist by writing to our US Representatives and Senators and encouraging them to act now to continue to support our recovery.
If you agree that it would be a big help if buyers continued to have an incentive to buy please click the link below and send e-mails to your Congressman and Senators. If we all speak up it can make a big difference. Feel free to forward this to your clients, friends and family. The more emails that are sent, the greater the chance for success.
Thanks for your help.
