“Despite the economic setbacks Americans have experienced in today’s current climate, it is clear that a strong majority still believe in home ownership and aspire to own a home.”

 

According to the 2011 National Housing Pulse Survey released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR):

NAR President Ron Phipps commented, “despite the economic setbacks Americans have experienced in today’s current climate, it is clear that a strong majority still believe in home ownership and aspire to own a home.”

Agents, do you find that buyers’ moods are improving?

  1. Absolutely! Of course now is a great time to buy a home. We will most likely never see home prices at these levels again in our lifetime. We work with people from all over the world. When you see investors buying as many properties as they can get and hold it to rent. That should tell you something!

    Obviously it is more difficult to get a loan in this day and age, but that is o.k. I think America needed a wake up call! Instead of complaining, do your research, get disciplined about your finances, make a plan, and set some goals. If you stay focused, you will be surprised how fast you can put yourself in a position to buy a home.

    Do not feel anxiety though. As we are not fortune tellers, I believe we still have a couple years to take advantage of depressed home prices. =)

    One day the government will also lower the regulations of the banks. You do not want to start getting ready to buy a home at that point. YOU WANT TO BE READY!

    Good Luck! Have a Beautiful Day!
