Americans have been skittish about buying new houses since the collapse of the real estate bubble. But they remain committed to the idea of homeownership, even if it's unclear how or when demand will pick up and drive a market recovery.

A recent survey published by the real-estate site Trulia shows that 70 percent of Americans still consider home ownership a central part of the "American Dream" -- a number unchanged since January, when Trulia last performed this survey, despite months of weak economic performance.
