The National Association of Realtors' survey, which polled 1,000 Americans
living in the 50 most populous metropolitan statistical areas about
their attitudes and concerns about the housing market,found that more than two-thirds (68 percent) of Americans believe that
owning a home is a good decision, and 71 percent believe they could sell
their houses for what they paid for them – an increase of 16 percentage
points since the NAR’s last Housing Pulse Survey in 2013.
