Now that the home buyer tax credit program has expired, it is important to emphasize to today’s homeuyers all of the great reasons why now is a great time to buy a new home.

With this in mind, NAHB’s popular virtual brochure for consumers “Opportunity Knocks” has been updated and is ready for home builders to download and use.

The brochure highlights the federal tax benefits of owning a home, the difference that even a small increase in interest rates can make on a monthly mortgage payment, and the solid value of homeownership over the long-term. It’s available as a PDF file that NAHB members can download for free at

HBA members are encouraged to post this resource to your websites, and to print it for distribution in your sales offices.
