What do people think? Do people think that this is a good time to buy a home?
There have been three separate surveys just recently who say that it is.
- The Gallup Poll which showed that 69% of Americans think this is a good time to buy.
- Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey which reported that Americans believe that homeownership is the investment with the most potential. They chose owning a home over other traditional investments such as stocks, mutual funds and bonds.
- The Pew Research Center study Home Sweet Home. Still explaining that 81% agree that buying a home is the best long-term investment a person can make.
So, where do you fit in? What are you thinking?
It certainly appears that the consensus of Americans is YES, this is a good time to purchase.
