47% Think It Will Take More Than Three Years For Housing Prices to Recover

Sunday, March 30, 2014

Nearly half of American Adults think housing prices will still take several more years to recover, and few have high hopes for the stock market in the near future. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% think it will take housing prices more than three years to recover from the downturn that began in 2008. That's unchanged from a year ago but slightly more optimistic than Americans had been about the housing market since mid-2010.   Five percent (5%) think it will take only a year for house prices to recover; 12% say two years, and 18% think it will take another three years. Nineteen percent (19%) are not sure. (To see question wording, click here.)
