The American consumer is increasingly concerned about how they spend their money and the cost of purchasing a home, according to a new survey from Zillow.
The survey, released Thursday, finds that 57 percent of Americans polled said they were less likely to purchase a home if they were asked to choose between two types of flooring.
“This is the first time in the survey that the average American homeowner is asked to select between two materials for their flooring,” said Zillows co-founder David Cole.
The survey found that people were less apt to buy a laminate-based flooring over a solid wood flooring if they also said they would be less likely if asked to buy two types.
“A lot of people were very disappointed by the choice of the two types,” Cole said.
“We also found that this was a particularly strong finding for people who have been negatively impacted by this price war.”
The survey of 2,700 U.S. homeowners, who are asked to complete the survey once every two years, found that 42 percent of respondents said they “do not want to buy laminate or non-laminate floor tiles for their home.”
More than a third (37 percent) of those surveyed said they do not want laminate tiles in their homes.
The poll found that 57% of Americans surveyed said that they were “not buying a home in 2018 because of the increased cost of building a home.”
Cole said that while the price war has caused a sharp drop in the number of homes being built, he believes the consumer has not yet been properly informed about the effects of the trend.
“And it’s a little bit of a slow trickle. “
But the market is changing.””
