52% Say Home Worth More Than What They Owe

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

While short-term confidence about home values is down from last month’s high , the number of homeowners who say their home is worth more than what they still owe on it is back over 50%. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 30% of U.S. Homeowners expect their home’s value to go up over the next year. Fifteen percent (15%) expect the value to go down, while 51% say their home’s value will stay about the same over the next year. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
