According to a recent poll, many Americans believe the economy is improving and they’re reasonably optimistic about the future. Many are ready to make more purchases; 67% say they are looking to buy a home in the future while 32% hope to buy within the next two years. Millennials and “move-up” buyers are the two primary segments like to buy. More space and the idea that home ownership is a sound financial investment are the two main motivators. Interestingly, 64% are looking for a move-in ready home rather than spending less and fixing up the home themselves.
