Advocates Laud Biden’s Plan as Milestone in Housing Policy

According to, President Joe Biden‘s proposal for more tax credits, which he revealed during his State of the Union speech, aims to address the problems associated with home affordability in light of rising mortgage rates and property values. Under this concept, both first-time homebuyers and current homeowners wishing to upgrade from their “starter homes” would be eligible for a $10,000 tax credit. With many homeowners reluctant to sell due to the low mortgage rates they were able to secure during the pandemic, this proposal seeks to revitalize a real estate market that has been stagnant for some time. Advocates for affordable housing solutions have expressed support for Biden’s proposal emphasizing how it would help millions of Americans who are struggling to afford housing. The plan was hailed as one of the most significant housing programs in more than 50 years by David M. Dworkin, CEO of the National Housing Council. With eligibility limited to households earning under $200,000, the proposed tax credits are aimed at middle-class families and are subject to Congressional approval.

Biden’s Tax Credits: A Potential Game-Changer for Housing Solution

The Biden administration believes that these tax credits could have a significant impact on the housing solution market by facilitating home purchases for approximately 3.5 million middle-class families and aiding around 3 million families in acquiring larger homes. By addressing the “lock-in” effect where homeowners are reluctant to sell due to favorable mortgage rates these credits aim to stimulate housing solution transactions and improve housing affordability nationwide. However, the timeline for implementation remains uncertain contingent upon legislative action from Congress with the administration pushing for enactment within the year to benefit homebuyers and homeowners starting in the 2024 tax year.
