A record low number of Americans, 50%, say it's a good time to buy a house. That's according to a new gallup poll.
That represents the lowest percentage of Americans with that opinion since Gallup began measuring it in 1978.
The previous low point was 52% during the housing bubble in 2006.
The new low coincides with a record drop in Amercans' economic confidence and worry about their own financial situation due to the coronavirus epidemic, says Gallup.
Forty percent (40%) of Americans say the average price of homes will increase over the next year. That's down from 62% a year ago.
Twenty-five percent (25%) say that home prices will decrease in the coming year. That's compared to 9% who said that last year.
Americans were more pessimistic about home values between 2008 and 2011 than they are now.
