“The Williamson County real estate market performed as expected for January. There is pent up demand from buyers and many consumers are waiting to hear about potential tax incentives proposed in the Economic Stimulus Package before making decisions. Buyers are looking, as the number of showings of homes for sale has increased in the last few weeks. We anticipate many buyers taking advantage of the lower interest rates and potential tax advantages enacted by the Federal Government,” said Diane Johnson, 2009 President of the Williamson County Association of REALTORS®.
