Daily Real Estate News  |  September 16, 2010  |   70 Percent Say Buying Now is Good
A survey by Fannie Mae shows that 70 percent of Americans believe it is a good time to buy a home.

That is up from 64 percent in January 2010.

Still, 33 percent–up from 30 percent in January–say they’ll rent next time around.

About 67 percent believe housing is a safe investment, down from 83 percent of people questioned in a similar survey in 2003.
