New High: 36% Think Their Home’s Value Will Go Up In the Next Year
Thursday, February 21, 2013
Confidence in the short-term housing market is now at its highest level in several years. But the number who say their home is worth more than what they still owe on it is down again.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 36% of U.S. homeowners now think the value of their home will go up over the next year. Fifteen percent (15%) expect that value to go down, while 46% feel it will stay about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
