Home Sales Shoot Way Up in April

April 2010 Heartland MLS Statisics

The following statistics compare sales activity in April 2010 with the same time last year. Remember, this is positive news but do not expect this to be a trend. These numbers were greatly influenced by the rush to buy before the federal home-buyer tax credit ended on April 30. Early signs show that May is going to be much different.
