Feeling Positive About Homeownership

Feeling Positive About Homeownership


Majority of home buyers remain undeterred of news and rumors about a possible recession creeping in. Although a lot can be said about the fact that inconsistencies abound in almost all facets of news, we are more inclined to talk about the good things we have observed from the buyers market recently.

“Nearly 70 percent of home shoppers this spring think the U.S. will enter a recession in the next three years, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying to close on a home…

Despite the fact that they foresee an economic downturn, they generally expressed confidence that a future recession will be better than 2008 for the housing market.”

The report provides more insights from the survey: Nearly 30% of the active home shoppers* surveyed expect the next recession to begin sometime in 2020.

56% of shoppers believe home prices have hit their peak. 41% believe housing will fare better than 2008.
45% of home shoppers feel at least slightly more optimistic about homeownership. 33% reported no impact on their feelings about homeownership.

Homebuyers are aware and making decisions with their eyes wide-open. As the report mentioned,

“The fact that some [36%] home shoppers expect the next recession to be harder on the housing market than the last recession suggests that they are buying homes with eyes wide-open and very sober, if not slightly pessimistic, views of the housing market.

This is a stark contrast to the years leading up to the last recession when ‘irrational exuberance’ was more common and yet another reason to expect that the next downturn will be very different for the housing market than the last.”

If you are considering buying a home, sit down with a local real estate professional that can help you understand your local market and determine if buying a home is the right choice for you now.
