Rasmussen – Just 49% Say Home Is Worth More Than Mortgage

Upper-income homeowners are more confident in their home value than those who earn less. Investors are much more confident than non-investors about their home’s value. Seventy-one percent (71%) of government workers believe their home is worth more than the mortgage. Just 50% of private sector employees and 42% of retirees share such optimism. This result comes at a time when confidence that home values will improve has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded.

In December 2008, 61% believed their home was worth more than their mortgage. While the numbers have declined since then, this is the first time ever that the number believing they had equity in their home stayed below 50% for two months in a row.
