Sales volume for April 2011 was down significantly in terms of number of sales and in total closed dollar volume comparing April 2011 with April 2010.  This is due in large part to the increased 2010 activity due to the federal homebuyer tax credit last year which expired at the end of April 2010 thus driving many buyers to try to purchase their home before the deadline so they could get the $8000 tax credit.
