HomeGain Releases 3rd Quarter 2010 National Home Prices Survey Results

Ninety percent of surveyed real estate professionals nationwide expect home prices to decrease or stay the same over the next six months; Nearly half “strongly disapprove” of  Obama’s performance as President.

HomeGain, one of the first companies to provide free instant home valuations online, announced the results of its nationwide 2010 third quarter home prices survey based on the responses of over 1,100 current and former HomeGain members and 2,600 homeowners.

Real estate professionals and homeowners soured on the direction of home prices in the third quarter. Forty-eight percent of agents and brokers and 33 percent of homeowners think that home prices will decrease over the next six months. This reflects an increase in the percentage of real estate professionals and homeowners who expect a decline in home prices from the second quarter HomeGain home prices survey. In that survey 33 percent of agents and brokers and 23 percent of homeowners expected home prices to decrease over the next six months. Forty-two percent of homeowners, real estate agents and brokers think that home prices will remain the same in the coming six months.

Only 10 percent of real estate professionals and 18 percent of homeowners expect home values to increase in the coming six months. The results are similar to a recent Rasmussen poll of homeowners that found only 15 percent expect home prices to rise over the next year.

Seventy-nine percent of homeowners continue to believe their homes are worth more than the recommended agent listing price, up from 77 percent last quarter.

Sixty-nine percent of surveyed agents and brokers indicated that their home buyer clients think homes for sale are overpriced, up from 61 percent last quarter.

Real estate professionals and homeowners are taking a far more negative view on the direction of home prices citing current high inventory levels, continued foreclosures, the expiration of the tax credit and the general state of the economy. There also continues to be an increasing disconnect between what homeowners and buyers think homes are worth.

Forty-nine percent of agents and brokers surveyed indicated that they “strongly disapproved” and 18 percent “somewhat disapproved” of Barack Obama’s performance as President, earning him a 67 percent disapproval rating versus the 58 percent disapproval rating of agents and brokers surveyed in the third quarter last year.  Last quarter the President had a 65 percent disapproval rating from agents and brokers.

Forty-four percent of homeowners “strongly disapproved” and 17 percent “somewhat disapproved” of the President’s performance, earning him a 61 percent disapproval rating. The President had a 56 percent disapproval rating last quarter among surveyed homeowners with 44 percent “strongly disapproving”. The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Approval Index taken during the same period as the HomeGain home prices survey indicated that the President’s average disapproval rating was 54 percent with an average of 43 percent “strongly disapproving” of his performance.

Below are the top states where real estate professionals and home owners think home prices will rise and fall over the next six months.

Earlier this month,  HomeGain,one of  the first companies to provide free online instant home valuations, released the second quarter results of our nationwide survey of over 3500 home owners and 900 HomeGain current and former members. The survey asked their opinions on home prices and what they thought of President Obama’s performance as President. On this blog we published the complete 2nd quarter 2010 national results as well as the complete 2nd quarter 2010 regional results, including commentary from real estate agents and brokers.

We also released the second quarter 2010 California home prices survey the second quarter 2010 Florida home prices, the second quarter 2010 Texas home prices survey ,the second quarter 2010 New York home prices survey,  the second quarter 2010 New Jersey home prices survey and the second quarter 2010 Georgia home prices survey results.

Today we are publishing the Illinois home prices survey data.

In the current survey 41% of Illinois home sellers believe that their homes should be priced 10–20% higher than their Realtor’s recommended listing prices vs. 43% who so believed in the first quarter 2010 Illinois home values survey. In the second quarter 2009 Illinois home prices survey, 37% of home sellers thought their homes should be priced 10-20% higher and only 6% thought their homes should be priced 21-30% higher. In the fourth quarter 2009 Illinois home prices survey 37% of Illinois home owners believed that their homes should be priced 10-20% higher than their Realtors’ recommended listing price and just 3% thought their homes should be priced 21-30% higher. (see question 2)

Illinois home buyers continue to believe that homes are  over priced in their state. According to real estate agents surveyed, sixty percent of Illinois home buyers think that  homes are over priced in their state with just 14% thinking that homes are fairly valued vs. 66% of Illinois home buyers who believed that home prices were over valued in the first quarter of 2010 and 9% thinking that homes were fairly valued. In the first quarter of 2010 45% of Illinois home buyers thought home prices were 10-20% overvalued  vs. 27% of Illinois home buyers who thought so in the current survey.

A year ago, 57% of Illinois home buyers thought homes were over valued and 18% thought home prices were fairly valued. (see question 3)

Only 3% of Illinois real estate professionals expect home prices to increase in their state over the next six months vs. 18 % who thought so in the first quarter of 2010 vs. 21% who thought so in the fourth quarter of 2009 and 20% who thought so a year ago. Fifty-eight percent of Illinois agents and brokers expect home prices in their state to stay the  same over the next six months and 39%  expect home prices to decrease.  A majority (52%) of surveyed Illinois home owners also believe that home prices will remain the same over the next six months while 27% expect home prices to increase and 21% expect them to decrease. (see question 6)

President Obama’s approval rating among surveyed Illinois agents and brokers rose in the second quarter to 58% up from 47% in the first quarter of 2010.  Illinois home owners gave the the former Illinois Senator a 51% approval rating.  Nationally 65% of surveyed agents and brokers and 58% of home owners  disapproved of the President’s performance.
