Housing Shifting From Renting To Owning, According To New Report

By
Real Estate Agent with South Florida Home Solutions

If you needed further confirmation that homeownership is becoming a more attractive option than renting to people across the country, just ask Harvard. According to the recent State of the Nation's Housing report from the Joint Center on Housing Studies of Harvard University, the national homeownership rate increased for the first time in 13 years (from 63.4% in 2016 to 63.9% in 2017), with the number of homeowners rising an average of 710,000 per year over the past two years. At the same time, the demand for renting has significantly slowed down. While growth in the number of rental households from 2000 - 2015 was at an average of 850,000 per year, that number dropped dramatically in 2015 - 2017 to just 220,000. The national rental vacancy rate also rose for the first time since 2009 (from 6.9% to 7.2%).

The Takeaway

As renting continues to become more unaffordable in markets across the country, more people are finding homeownership to be the best (and oftentime more affordable) housing option for themselves and their families.
