The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) reports that pending home sales for the month of February were up.
According to the NAR, "The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contracts signed in February, rose 8.2 percent to 97.6 from a downwardly revised 90.2 in January, and remains 17.3 percent above February 2009 when it was 83.2."
A sign of a busy real estate market this spring? Possibly. In our opinion, favorable home prices, low interest rates and government tax credits are certainly encouraging buyers to consider buying this year.
