Greetings neighbors,

In a recent survey from U.S. households, Americans feel the government should continue in their quest to help U.S. citizens obtain homes. Out of both homeowners and renters that were polled, 68% feel that the government should continue their efforts while 65% feel the U.S. government needs to do more to keep families out of the way of foreclosures.

In addition, it's not just home owners who feel that the government needs to do more in reference to foreclosure, the survey showed 84% of renters feel that more needs to be done. Out of that percentage the issue regarding foreclosure seems to be of more importance to women with 71% requesting more foreclosure protection opposed to only 58% of men.

Another group that overwhelmingly supports more home owner protection is first-time home buyers under 30 years of age which accounted for 78% in comparison to 68% of 30-40 year old move-up buyers.

This poll was conducted for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) by RT Strategies.
