It should come as no surprise that with the first-time homebuyer and repeat homebuyer tax credits set to expire in April, many Pacific Northwest homebuyers were moving quickly to take advantage of this great opportunity.
Pending home sales (in process, but not yet closed) in Whatcom County last month totaled 372 in April, up nearly 27% from March, reports the NW Multiple Listing Service. Closed home sales last month were about the same as in March (203 homes).
Whatcom County homebuyers with pending sales have until the end of June to qualify for the tax credit, so the market is expected to remain active. And just because the tax credit has expired doesn’t mean that there won’t be good buyer incentives in the months ahead.
