The National Association of Realtors (NAR) released their first quarter Housing Opportunities and Market Experience survey which reveals that 85% of surveyed current homeowners and 75% of renters would purchase a single-family home in the next six months. When asked if they would purchase a home outside an urban area, 85 % of homeowners and 21% of renters answered that they would.

While there has been an increase in the demand for single-family homes, builder’s confidence for March has remained even with February. According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), builder’s confidence for newly built single-family homes has been steady at a level of 58 on the National Associations of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). The component gauging current sales conditions was level at 65 while sales expectations in the next six months dropped 3 points to 61 from February.
