If you bought a home during the pandemic, there’s a good chance you think you paid too much.

Over one-third (36%) of buyers who closed on a home during the last two years believe they overpaid, according to a survey by Money and Morning Consult, a decision intelligence company.

That’s twice the percentage of those who purchased a home two to nine years ago and feel like they overpaid (18%), and more than double the rate of those who bought 10 or more years ago and think they paid more than they needed (14%).
