Opinion Poll Says Tax Credit Will Work

Release date: 12/4/09

The government tax credit to first time home buyers and expansion of the program will work to help the housing market recover, according to a new Housing Predictor opinion poll. The survey found that by a small majority the program will work to aid the housing market to stabilize.

Only 57% of those polled said the tax credit backed by Congress would aid markets to recover from the nationwide downturn. The other 43% said it would not be of help to the market. The narrow findings may also represent that many people are disillusioned with the process to repair housing markets with increased political involvement. The online survey was taken over a three week period ending December 1st.

Congress recently approved an extension of the first time home buyers credit and expanded the program to move-up buyers, who have not purchased a home in five years. The National Association of Realtors credits the first time home buyers credit with nearly 2-million home purchases through the end of 2009.

Banks, mortgage companies, retail and real estate firms consult Housing Predictor forecasts. The company was the first real estate research firm to forecast the foreclosure epidemic and the housing depression. Housing Predictor forecasts more than 250 local real estate markets in all 50 states and offers real estate news and analysis on the housing market at http://www.housingpredictor.com
