Future-Proof: Navigate Threats, Seize Opportunities at ICNY 2018 | Jan 22-26 at the Marriott Marquis, Times Square, New York

More than one in three homeowners and renters surveyed by Fannie Mae in March said it’s a good time to sell, up from about one in four at the same time last year. Sixty-nine percent said it’s a good time to buy, and more than half (52 percent) said it would be easy to get a mortgage, up from 47 percent last year.  While just 12 percent of those surveyed said they expected their financial situation to worsen during the next 12 months, only 33 percent think the economy is on the right track.
