59% Say Their Home is Worth More Now Than When They Bought It

Friday, August 23, 2013

Most homeowners are confident that they know what their home is worth in today’s market, and more now say it’s worth more than when they bought it.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 79% of homeowners are at least somewhat confident that they know how much their home is worth, including 41% who are Very Confident. That’s up from 75% in June, the lowest level of confidence to date.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
