Trulia Survey Reveals Homeowner Pessimism

A blemish of pessimism is wandering around the housing market and homebuyers’ decisions according to a new poll by Trulia.
Homeowner Pessimism

Many homeowners believe that a housing purchase mistake in the past is now holding them back from making a move from their present situation.

Poll respondents believed that housing prices have become less affordable since 2012.  More than a quarter of respondents stated that they cannot afford to buy a home in the present market.

High income homeowners seem to be putting down larger amounts and borrowing less money than in the past.

Pessimism isn’t a good recipe for a thriving market with more available loan programs and the Federal Reserve contemplating further interest rate increases.  A stable market may still not be so tangible.
