Huntsville Real Estate Sales Statistics - October 2009

Congress has voted to extend the current higher Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA loan limits through 2010. The present loan limits would expire at the end of 2009 and revert to previous lower limits. The higher limits, along with the home buyer tax credit extension, are necessary to keep the markets moving at this critical time," said National Association of Realtors President Charles McMillan. "Home sales have shown significant movement upwards in the past six months and reduced inventory in some segments of the housing market, but not in all. Home purchases in the middle-income and higher brackets have not moved much, and those markets must improve before we can experience a fully sustained housing recovery. These higher loan limits will help motivate qualified home buyers to purchase in those markets," McMillan said.
