An Increase in Pending Home Sales

According to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® pending home sales have leveled due to a strong response to the home buyer tax credit.

The Pending Home Sales Index is a tool that tracks signed contracts.  In December there was a 1 percent increase from 95.6 to 96.6 from the previous month. This figure is 10.9 percent higher than December 2008 when it was 87.1.

Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says it’s important to recognize how the tax credit is skewing market data.

“There are easily understood swings in contract activity as buyers respond to a tax credit that was expiring and was then extended and expanded,” he says. “These swings are masking the underlying trend, which is a broad improvement over year-ago levels.”
