REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey: May 2014 Highlights

The REALTORS® Confidence Index (RCI) Report provides monthly information about market conditions and expectations, buyer/seller traffic, price trends, buyer profiles, and issues affecting real estate based on data collected in a monthly survey of REALTORS®:  see the May 2014 report at

Broadly, the May 2014 survey indicates that REALTOR®  confidence in May concerning current conditions was essentially flat, while registering a slight dip in confidence about the outlook for the next 6 months across all markets. Continued tightness in supply, although improving, difficult credit conditions, and the lackluster growth in income and savings were reported to be constraining sales. Local conditions vary.
