Tick-tock....tick-tock...Time is running out on the First time home buyer Tax Credit....T minus 20 days 02 hours 04 Minutes and 35 seconds give or take as I type these words (04/09/10 21:56:25).... Get your motor running... it is now or never
...or is it?

April Is Fair Housing month, marking the 42nd Anniversary of the 1968 landmark Fair Housing Act. As Realtors® it is a good reminder to look closely at our buyers and sellers and our own actions on how we treat our clients (and fellow Realtors® for that matter)...are we always upholding equality? And are we watching out for them as to any discrimination they,our clients may encounter?

Article 10 of the REALTORS® Code of Ethics provides that "REALTORS® shall not deny equal professional services to any person for reasons of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. REALTORS® shall not be parties to any plan or agreement to discriminate against a person or persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. REALTORS®, in their real estate employment practices, shall not discriminate against any person or persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin."

If you feel you've been discriminated against contact the US Department of Housing and Urban Development /
Office of Fair Housing and Equal opportunity

Not much time left now Shane.  Those fence-sitters better hurry up and make up their minds about purchasing a home.
