Daily Real Estate News  |   February 26, 2010  |   Should Buyers Try to Beat the Tax Credit?
Some potential home buyers say they're holding out until the tax credits expire on the theory that prices will decline once the buying incentive is gone.

One person who commented on the dilemma on Zillow.com wrote: “I’ve seen prices in my neighborhood jump up over $30k since the credit started.”

In some markets, waiting is clearly the wrong move. A renter in Las Vegas told the Wall Street Journal that he’s been outbid eight times trying to buy a house. He doesn’t believe the expiration of the credit will make any difference.
