If you thought that the recent recession has deterred homebuyers, think again. According to Trulia.com’s biannual American Dream Survey, 70 percent of Americans still consider homeownership as the American Dream, and 78 percent of homeowners see the purchase of their homes as the best investment they ever made. Additionally, the survey found that in the South the outlook for the housing market is bright: Seventy-nine percent of renters in this region plan to purchase a home, making Florida real estate in high demand.

The driving factor in Florida’s economic recovery may be coming from an unlikely source: Although many Millennials came of age during the housing market crash, 26 percent say that their views of homeownership have become more positive over the past six months, and 88 percent of renters ages 18 to 34 aspire to own a home.
