A study of over 3000 adults over the age of 20, results in more than 59% of renters and 99% of existing homeowners feel that homeownership is important. Of those surveyed, a large majority also felt that homeownership is an economic cornerstone. Additionally, real estate makes a huge impact on the overall economic vitality of a region or city. It certainly has in Tampa.
The most important result of this study is that as many as two million people are waiting to purchase a home when the time is right. Of those surveyed 62% of existing homeowners and 59% of renters believe right now, today is a “good or very good time to buy”.
