Two-Thirds Of Consumers Say They Would Buy A Home vs Rent If There Were To Move

Yesterday, I shared that, according to the Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI), nearly three-fourths of consumers think now is not a good time to buy a home.  However, the same survey that produced that data also showed that tw0-thirds of the consumers that responded said if they would buy a home vs rent if they were in fact going to move.  As our chart below illustrates, for 3 of the last four months, 66% indicated they would buy.  While the percentage that indicated they would buy was as high as 72% last May, it was in fact the same, at 66% a year ago in March as well as the year before that in March.  So, while consumers don’t think now is a good time to buy, it appears many are doing it or would do it, anyway.
