Fannie Mae National Housing Survey-Attitudes Towards Owning a Home, Renting, and Personal Finances

Monthly Survey Reports Opinions on Home Ownership, Renting, and Household Finances

Fannie Mae has a new monthly consumer attitude report offering a peek into the sentiments of Americans across the country. What are people feeling about owning a home, whether it’s a good time to buy or sell, and people’s outlook on home prices and whether they’re heading going up or down. The survey polls 1,000 of your fellow citizens every month via a live telephone interview to get a feel for what’s going on in the court of public opinion.

Homeowners and renters are asked a long list of 100 questions which are used to track attitudinal shifts. The results are then compared to the same survey conducted every month since June 2010.

So how is the attitude out there in the country?  Please continue to the next page to see the full report …
