June Sales Report
June homes sales were up slightly compared to 2010, says a HAR report. The sales figures were released last week and show some hope for the housing market. That is, in some price ranges. Homes priced above $250,000 or below saw an increase, more in the lower range than the higher. Homes in the mid-range took a dip over last year’s figures. This drop is assumed to be due to the lack of a home buyer tax credit this year as the credit expired in 2010 and had boosted the market for a short time.
