How are homebuyers and homeowners feeling about the housing market?
On the heels of the latest Case-Shiller report which once again showed home prices on an upswing, our latest housing sentiment survey - the quarterly ValueInsured Modern Homebuyer Survey - indicates homeowners’ and homebuyers’ housing confidence are trending in opposite directions, but the patterns may surprise many.
We will highlight our findings next week and over the subsequent weeks to help provide better clarity on what is motivating buyers and sellers this season. Topics next week will include:
- How experienced owners feel about the market vs 1st-time buyers
- The extent to which buyers will go to get into a home
- How buyers in "hot" markets feel about the health of their cities
- Is affordability the only concern?
