AP Survey: More Homeowners Avoid Buying Homes

A growing number of Americans say they don’t plan to buy a home anytime soon, according to a new Associated Press-AOL Money and Finance survey. Nearly two-thirds (60 percent) of homeowners say they definitely will not buy a home within the next two years, up from 53 percent in September 2006. More than a quarter of homeowners worry that their home will lose value over the next two years, and one in seven fear they won’t be able to make a mortgage payment on time over the next six months.

    Good article – all very informative. Another thing to consider is that 24-27% of ALL potential home buyers are NOT going to qualify for financing now – with the new restrictive mortgage guidelines – and NO MORE $0 Down loans. Perhaps you and your potential buyers would benefit by having me help them to genuinely repair their credit. I’ve written an article about that at and would welcome the opportunity to help you sell more homes this year!
