The Mood Among 2012 Home-Buyers: Feisty

Updated on October 2nd, 2020

On Saturday morning, Redfin surveyed 6,062 people who had toured a home with a Redfin agent since January 1, 2012. As of Wednesday at 5 p.m., 1,457 customers had responded. The survey screened out 126 people  who had no plans to buy this year, leaving 1,331 respondents.
The resulting data give us a uniquely broad, real-time portrait of this year’s home-buyers across 19 major metropolitan markets.
Their mood is, in a word, feisty. Of the people planning to buy within the next 12 months, more than half are either already under contract on a purchase or planning to be under contract within three months.
