A majority of homeowners believe now is a good time to buy or remodel homes, and more of them feel comfortable beginning planned renovations than they did last year, according to a survey commissioned by home-remodeling website Houzz.

Three-quarters of the more than 100,000 homeowners who responded to the "2013 Houzz and Home Survey" said that now is a good time to buy a home, and 53 percent said it was also a good time to remodel, according to Houzz.
