Nashville TN Real Estate January Sales Increase 6%

Nashville TN Real Estate January Sales Increase 6%

Today the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors posted that property sales had increased 6% in the month of January 2010 over January 2009 sales. Many have been skeptical about how much the First Time HomeBuyers' Tax Credit was actually helping the local economy.

Sales had increased over 60% in November and that was very clearly a result of the Tax Credit.

The jump in January shows that local confidence in the economy is still strong compared to last year.

 

January 2009

January 2010

CLOSINGS

974

1,033

Residential

821

821

Condominium

103

164

These numbers are significant because the unemployment rate hit an all time high of 9.4% in December. We will be watching the Fed, and whether they extend the tax credit OR extend the buying of the mortgage securities, any time in the next few weeks. As it stands, both expire.

If you are thinking of purchasing a home this year, this spring is the time to do it.
