According to a recent Gallup poll, it is the first time in more than 15 years that a
majority of Americans are optimistic about finding a quality job. This is great news
for the entry-level housing market, as job growth and improved wages fuel demand
for home purchases. Rents have also been on the rise, another factor that has put
the entry-level market in strong demand.
