Survey Says ... AP-AOL Money & Finance Poll

Posted by Joe Manausa on Wednesday, May 7th, 2008 at 8:26am.

Today's Tallahassee Florida Real Estate Blog is dedicated to my fellow number-crunching types who really like to "know the numbers."

I was searching for news online and found The AP-AOL Money & Finance poll. This poll was conducted a month ago and involved telephone interviews with 1,002 adults nationwide, for whom the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.1%. Of the 1,002 surveyed, 769 were homeowners. So what does this mean... it shows how opinions around the country seem to be pretty consistent and similar to what we hear in the Tallahassee real estate market.

An area that I found particularly interesting was how people perceived pricing in their own local market areas. The results were pretty evenly-spaced, with the optimists being the strongest group. I suspect we would find similar results in the Tallahassee real estate market.

And for those of you who actually want to see the raw numbers:

Time will tell as to whether or not the fears are rational or not. We know that real estate is a commodities market, therefore we are bound to the fears and concerns of the buyers in the market place, just as any other market is tied to the fears and concerns of its buyers. And time has proven these fears and concerns can turn to greed very quickly.....
