Housing Sentiment May Be Bouncing Back

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Respondents to Fannie Mae's January National Housing Survey adopted a new outlook to go along with the new year, primarily in responses about their personal financial situation.  As a result, the Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) increased 1.2 point to 84.7, taking back some of the 2.3 points it shed in December.

The improvement was driven by an 8-point increase in the net share of respondents reporting higher income than 12 months earlier. At 27 percent, that net is 11 points higher than in January 2018.  This was partially offset by a 6-point decline in the net percentage of those who said they were not concerned about losing their job.  The net of 73 percent is unchanged from a year ago.
