What's more, 58 percent of homeowners believe sellers have more power than buyers in the market right now, nearly the highest level of seller confidence the researchers say they've recorded.

Pull out my profit: 21%

A smaller or less expensive home: 20%

A change in family status: 19%

A better school district: 15%


Some Americans expressed concerns about selling, mainly about finding a new home to buy when they sell their own.

General economic conditions might discourage buyers: 23%

Price matters

When it comes to setting a price for their home, 55 percent of homeowners say they'll price in the middle range based on comparable sales. However, 19 percent of homeowners said they would price high, citing that negotiation is inevitable; and 12 percent said they'd price high because if the market didn't value their home enough, they would wait until it did.
