Consumers See Positive Housing Trends Heading Into Selling Season

April 7, 2014

Prospective homeowners are increasingly more optimistic, with 38% of respondents to Fannie Mae’s March 2014 National Housing Survey saying it is a good time to sell a home, compared to 26% a year ago.

Similarly, the number of people who believe it would be easy to get a mortgage today increased to 52%, from 47% a year ago, which Fannie notes ties the survey’s all-time high.
