NECN focused on the Milton housing market this weekend to see how the $8,000 tax credit — and its pending demise next month — is influencing buying trends. It concluded that the tax credit is luring a lot of potential buyers into the market.

To NECN’s credit, it brings up the subject of whether some buyers, overly determined to take advantage of the $8,000 credit, may be bidding too high for properties, negating the financial benefits of the tax break.
