HomeGain 3rd Quarter 2010 Home Prices Survey: 90% of Agents Do Not Think Home Prices Will Rise

We announced the results of our 3rd quarter 2010 home prices and presidential approval poll of over 1,100 real estate professionals and over 2,600 homeowners.

Overall, it showed that real estate professionals and homeowners soured on the direction of home prices in the third quarter. Forty-eight (48) 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 both groups from the 2nd quarter survey.
