In One Chart: This chart shows fizzling momentum in the housing market

Only 13% of Americans say they plan to buy a home within the next 12 months, marking the third straight quarter in which fewer people expect to become homeowners.

That statistic comes from the National Association of Home Builders’ quarterly Housing Trends Report, published in early November.

Of four age groups surveyed, millennials are the most likely to be planning a home purchase, with a 19% share of that generation responding yes. The numbers decrease steadily as age increases: 13% of Gen-Xers, 7% of baby boomers, and 3% of seniors plan to buy.

About 54-55% of active buyers of every age have been looking for more than three months for the right home.
