Increasingly Optimistic Attitudes on Housing Market

Posted in News

From Mortgage News Daily.  A new Gallup survey seems to indicate that Americans are falling in love with real estate again.  The poll, conducted among over a thousand respondents this month, shows that 56 percent of Americans think the average price of a home in their local area will increase compared to only one-third who thought so two years ago and 21 percent, a survey low, in January 2011.  Another 34 percent expect prices to remain at about the same level, leaving only 10 percent who believe prices will fall again. The current euphoria is not up to pre-crash standards, but is closing in on the peak 60 percent who expected appreciation in late 2006
