HousingWire reports that a recent survey found that 65% of Americans think that it is a good time to buy a home.

Homeowner optimism continues to trend upward, with new data from the National Association of Realtors indicating more Americans are ready to put their homes on the market.

According to the group's Q2 HOME survey, 46% of Americans strongly believe now is a good time to sell a home.

“An increased number of Americans also think that now is a good time to buy a home, and of those respondents, 38% answered that they strongly believe that notion, and 27% said they moderately believe the present is a good time to buy,” NAR writes. “Thirty-five percent disagreed, stating that now is not a good time to make a home purchase, which is unchanged from 2019’s first quarter.”
