Take Advantage of the Extended Tax Deduction

Hats off to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and its lobbying efforts for bringing us fantastic news out of Washington, D.C.–lawmakers have extended the homebuyer tax credit to April 30, 2010. And they’ve sweetened the deal: the law increases the limit for couples to $225,000 in annual income, roughly $55,000 more than the existing law.

Plus, it adds a nice $6,500 carrot for those who’ve lived in their homes for five of the prior eight years to buy up or buy elsewhere. I believe this will move houses at both the lower and higher ends as well.
