If you couldn’t remember, you could tell exactly when the Federal Home Buyer Tax Credit ended by looking at this chart – April 30, 2010. Beginning in May we see a steep decline in the number of homes that went under contract. I predict that the number of buyers begins to increase as the summer wears on and interest rates keep falling, though I do not think it will be a substantial change. *I created this chart for a specific client in a sample area of KC by gathering numbers and sale info from the local MLS.
