First Time Home Buyer Savings Accounts

NAR supports Home Buyer Savings Accounts established at the state level and urges states to adopt such plans. NAR believes individuals or families saving for homeownership should be able to put a percentage of income or maximum amount of funds into an account that is tax free to be used within a specified amount of time for the purchase of a home. Home Buyer Savings Accounts are typically used for first time homeowners or returning home buyers.
