Survey Shows Split in Real Estate over 2011


Destin, FL – December 14, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — The New Year will ring in better times in the U.S. real estate market, according to one out of three people surveyed. The opinion poll found that the majority of respondents, however, aren’t so enthused about real estate when it comes to the calendar advancing to 2011.

The opinion poll was conducted over a three week period to show the mixed results by Housing Predictor dot com, which you can visit for the details on the poll and to check your new market forecast for 2011. The outcome is particularly timely considering consumer sentiment over the U.S. economy has been shown to improve in a number of recent surveys and retail sales are climbing moving into the Christmas holiday season when retailers do the largest percentage of sales for the year.

A seasonal slowdown in sales is typical during the holiday season in most areas of the country as cold winter weather makes buyers more reluctant to venture out and look for property.

Housing Predictor forecasts local housing markets in all 50 U.S. states and was the first real estate research firm to forecast the foreclosure crisis, providing consumers unbiased independent housing market forecasts to make better decisions.
