If you haven't done so already, email your reps and the prez with your request for an extension of the First Time Buyer Tax Credit. Interest rates usually rise in the second year of a new president, so we will need some help for the first timers early next year.
If we don't start asking now, we might see another slowdown. If your market can benefit with the First Time Buyer Tax Credit extension, here's where you can find out who to contact.
Go to http://www.congress.org/congressorg/directory/congdir.tt and enter your zip code. You will see who your reps are and how to contact them. Then, contact them! Some buyers think they have already missed out on the credit. If the credit is extened, those buyers might act faster this time!
And, either re-blog this or write your own blog on the same topic! Keep the momentum of the first time buyers going! It wouldn't hurt to get the NAR involved, too. Email the CEO Dale Stinton! His email is email@example.com (as of 9/21/09)
Happy listing and selling real estate!
