ABSTRACT
The article discusses the findings of a survey on the views of homeowners in the U.S. regarding the value of their homes. The survey found that homeowners perceived that the value of their properties has either increased or remained the same in 2008. According to online real estate firm Zillow, the survey revealed the perception-versus-reality gap or misperception index, which is attributed to homeowner inattention and denial.
