The recently-released May 2013 National Housing Survey by Fannie Mae showed that 40% of responders said that now is a good time to sell a home. That is up from only 16% in May of last year. At the same time, 76% of Fannie Mae’s responders said that it is a good time to buy a home — just a little more than the number of those who thought so last year. Redfin has surveyed real estate agents on the same issue. 82% said that now is a good time to sell, compared to 54% last year.
