We define first home buyers as buyers buying homes below $250,000. Since there is no real time way to measure who is or isn’t a first home buyer, this is completely arbitrary. We know that not all are first time home buyers, and some first home buyers buy above $250,000, but it seems a good cut off, that should average out over time- we continue to research it… by this measure
there were 22 Matthews home sales, or 45% of all purchasers were first home buyers taking advantage of those $8000 tax credits.
