Optimism and Homeownership

Even with the recent failure of the housing market, the majority of American residents still would like to be homeowners.

Fannie Mae recently published a survey that states that despite all of the troubles associated with housing, 65% of respondents would rather own a home. Also, 64% of people feel now is a  good time to buy a home, while 44% expect their outlook on finances will improve in a year,  and 31% think the economy is on the right track..

Although there is optimism about homeownership, 60% feel that purchasing a home is harder for them than their parents. 68% of respondents also felt that it will not get easier and their children will struggle even more when it comes to buying a home.

Certainly home prices are more affordable than a few years ago and mortgage rates are still low. If you have a stable income, good credit and a decent down payment, it may be time to put serious consideration into buying a home now.
