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.
