Home Sale Statistics for Tallahassee's First Quarter

Real estate is local. Here's the numbers for Tallahassee (all of Leon County) home sales for 2008 and 2009 thus far.

Jan. 08 - 148 Jan. 09 - 92
Feb. 08 - 179 Feb. 09 - 100
March 08 - 230 March 09 - 139

Obviously home sales are down for the 2009 year as compared to last year. Still the number of homes sales for the year hasn't reached the peak months yet. With the $8000 tax credit incentive, perhaps the first time homebuyers will push Tallahassee back up to increased sales.

Real Estate Sales by Month in Tallahassee

I did statistics for 2007 and 2008 and of course thus far for 2009 on the number of homes sold (closed) by month in each year. I wanted to show the cycle to help sellers recognize when to place their homes for sale. Yes, there will be more homes available during this period, but most get sold during it too. While 2007 peaked in July with substantial homes sold in August too, 2008 peaked in June and then dropped abruptly. With the $8000 tax incentive for first time homebuyers, hopefully 2009 will continue strong sales (as strong as they will be this year) through August also.
