New Low: 12% Think Their Home Will Be Worth Less in a Year

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Fewer homeowners than ever now expect their home to be worth less in a year’s time.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 12% of U.S. Homeowners think the value of their home will go down over the next year. That's down from 14% last month and the lowest finding since Rasmussen Reports began regularly tracking on this question in April 2009.  Thirty-four percent (34%) think their home’s value will be higher a year from now, consistent with findings for much of this year. Fifty-one percent (51%) think their home’s value will remain about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
