Half of Survey Respondents Want Energy Efficient Home

January 14th, 2012

According to an October survey of 1,500 homeowners conducted byYahoo Real Estate, Origination News tells MHProNews.com one-third of the respondents know someone who has been through foreclosure, and 51 percent say the federal government should do more to assist distressed borrowers. Twenty-seven percent said the government should do no more, and 22 percent had no opinion. While 43 percent believe the presidential election will have a significant impact on the housing market, 36 percent do not anticipate much effect. Although more respondents gave a slight edge to the Democrats over the Republicans in terms of improving the housing market, neither party won much confidence in actually trying to solve the problem. More than 90 percent said they are satisfied with their current living situation, but 27 percent said they are looking to purchase another home. Fully half of the respondents equate their dream home with having energy-saving materials and appliances, as “green” homes have become more of a status symbol than the McMansions.
