Waiting for home sales
I recently asked you in a Wonk poll whether you had plans to be in the housing market this winter. Two thirds of you said yes, which might be a bellwether of a busier-than-usual season or just a sign that you only put up with my wonkishness when you're in the market. So who knows. But here's how the poll breaks down:
Forty-one percent of you say you hope to buy.
Thirteen percent of you hope to sell.
Twelve percent hope to buy and sell.
Thirty percent have no plans to be in the market this winter.
None of you said you're in the market for a new apartment.
And four of you wrote in your own answers:"hope to get approved and ready for early spring"
"Interested, but uncertain"
"Waiting for the post-incentive re-crash"
And "Not until home prices fall an additional 20%."
