Pending Home Sales Continue Growth April 26, 2010
The most obvious way to predict future home sales would be to take a look at the list of homes that are under contract and waiting for closing. These are what we refer to as “Pending Home Sales” and we can track them on a daily basis in the Tallahassee MLS.
The real estate graph below shows that we appear to be climbing up from the bottom of the housing market established in mid July. It is exciting to see this growth after years of steady declines.
This graph is the one-year trend of pending home sales, so the changes that we see are not due to any annual seasonality in any way (every point on the graph contains a full 365 days worth of information).
With the tax credit continuing through June and expanded for all home buyers with contracts through April, I suspect that we will see at least a continuation of the level that we are at (and possibly a steady increase like we’ve seen over the past seven months).
Join us keeping a close eye on the Pending Home Sales Report at The Market Bulletin.
