Home Sales Decline Following the End of the Tax Credit Stimulus

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. The information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
