Gallup poll shows U.S. expects continued increases

house prices expected to riseGallup polls have been around for 82 years! They were founded in 1935. Reviewing one of their newest real estate polls shows that 61% expect local home values to rise in the next year. Two weeks ago we posted the a 10 page report from Florida Realtors that showed single family homes had risen again. The recent history of rising home prices, would seem to lend support to the polls results. If you are trying to decide if now is the right time to buy a house, we strongly encourage you not put it off. It would probably be a bad gamble to home that homes will be cheaper next year than they are now! To read Gallup’s full article, click here.
