An Economic Analysis of the Homebuyer Tax Credit

An Economic Analysis of the Homebuyer Tax Credit

Date: December 1, 2009
Creator: Keightley, Mark P.
Description: This report provides an economic analysis of the homebuyer tax credit. Data suggest that home prices in general may be stabilizing and that the home inventory is beginning to return to a more normal level. Given the close proximity of these improvements to when the homebuyer tax credit was enacted by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and first modified by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, one could argue that the tax credit was the cause of these improvements.
