Confidence in Home Ownership Headed In Right Direction

I’m using my iPad more and more to get my news, but I still love “old fashioned” newspapers and magazines. On one of my recent – and many – flights to visit with Coldwell Banker agents around the country, I stopped in the Hudson News at Newark Airport and picked up Money Magazine.

When I got to the back page and saw the chart, I have to tell you my smile went ear-to-ear. Consumers are showing renewed confidence in housing!

Money asked its readers, “Is this a good time to buy real estate?”

The results:
1) 48% said it was a great time to buy
2) 26% said it was an OK time to buy
3) Only 26 % thought it was probably not a good time or was a bad time to buy

As the economy continues to improve, confidence in home ownership should also rise. This survey shows that we are headed in the right direction.

    Our phones are much busier now, Jim! More listings – increased showings – more offers – typing contracts!

    In the Jersey Shore, more specifically, the greater Atlantic City market, we are expecting a greater concentration of job growth over the next 5 years, relative/proportionate to our current 250k population, than pehaps anywhere else in the country? Tell me if I'm wrong please….but this is what I am hearing locally…

    This is great to hear. I believe it's all in our attitudes. I have been noticing more and more people speaking positively about the housing market these days. I think more and more people are getting off the fence and ready to buy.
