Attitudes about these and many other economic indicators are around two-and-a-half-year highs, Doug Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist, told the publication.

“On the housing front, attitudes about the current selling environment continue to improve, with a significant increase in those saying it would be a good time to sell,” he said.
