Despite Pandemic, Homeowners View Housing as a Good Investment

Tuesday, April 6, 2021

Fannie Mae says results from its fourth quarter 2020 National Housing Survey show that consumers continue to view homeownership as a good investment. Respondents were asked about various investment types, including stocks, bonds, homes, and savings accounts. Seventy-five percent of respondents indicated that homes are a "safe" investment, ranking just slightly below a savings/money market account. Additionally, 73 percent of consumers felt that investing in a home has "a lot of potential." Only 63 percent felt that way about owning stocks. The report, written for the company's Perspectives blog by Mark Palim, Vice President and Deputy Chief Economist and Rachel Zimmerman, Market Research Advisor and National Housing Survey Lead, says the recent single family housing market has been especially strong. As of Q4 2020, home prices were up by double digits and existing home sales were 20 percent higher year-over-year.
