Seattle Real Estate Sales For April Still Strong

Total home sales in Seattle hit nearly the same levels as March, continuing strong year-over-year sales gains.  While prices remain flat, it seems that we've gotten past the price depreciation of 2008 and 2009.

I am wondering how much of the bump was due to the tax credit and what May will look like. 

I don't feel much of a drop off with may sales but we will see.

I haven't seen much of a drop off either, but am curious what the May/June numbers will look like.  With home prices low & interest rates still super low, it's a great time to buy out there tax credit or no tax credit.

Pendings were up a bit in April, probably somewhat based on the tax credit, but it was nothing like October.  Pendings are getting to be such a flaky stat these days anyway with short sales.  I'd imagine we get a slow summer increase, the usual seasonal effect.
