REALTORS WORKING TO EXTEND THE TAX CREDIT
September 22, 2009----Some people are unsure of what the job description of a Realtor entails. Maybe we just show homes to buyers and hold open houses every other weekend or so. Maybe we just stick the sign in the yard and go home to eat bon-bons until someone calls. I can assure you, both of these are not the case.
As a Realtor, we are constantly working with the local, state and national governments to make sure policies are not implimented that will harm those who own real estate. Afterall, do you still want to write off the interest from your home on taxes? Well, guess what, it has come up time and time again where this benefit of owning real estate has been "on the fence". We, as Realtors, want to keep every benefit, safeguard and option open to current homeowners or future buyers. Real estate is the #1 generator of wealth for Americans.
