Consumer Sentiments on Housing

Nearly three of every four people believe now is a good time to buy a home, and an even larger number - nearly seven of every 10 - believe now is a good time to sell a home compared to a year ago.

Those statistics are among the latest findings in the Homeownership Opportunities and Market Experience (HOME) survey. The report, a service of the National Association of REALTORS®, is produced quarterly to monitor consumer sentiment about the housing market.

The HOME survey gauges views on housing as a good financial investment, whether homeownership is part of the American Dream, perception of home price changes, financing, and other topics. Findings are presented in both narrative form and as infographics.
