Birmingham area home sales dipped in December, though there are some signs of a continued revival in the housing market, according to a real estate expert.
Real estate blogger Tom Brander says area home sales tumbled in December, but signs aren’t all negative.
On his blog, Tom Brander writes that the number of home sales in the state’s biggest metro area in December declined 17 percent from November to total 913 transactions. November’s total was inflated by buyers rushing to take advantage of a government tax credit that was set to expire, he notes.
