Homeownership remains out of reach for most renters, as the cost of housing continues to climb.
Across the country, only 45% of renters on average can afford the payments on a median-priced home in their area, according to new report on the state of housing from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Buying a house is even more out of reach for renters in expensive markets such as the West Coast, the Northeast and Florida. In these parts of the country, as few as 10% of renters could afford the mortgage payments if they bought a home.
“It impairs their ability to accumulate the down-payment,” says Chris Nard, president of mortgage at Citizens Bank in Dedham, Mass. “If 50% of your income is going to rent, there’s precious little left over to accumulate a down-payment for a house.”
Millions of Americans, including renters and home owners alike, continue to struggle to afford their housing.
More than 11 million renter households spend at least half their incomes on their housing, the report found. Cost-burdens aren’t just limited to cities where housing is expensive.
Only 41% of renters say they have enough funds to go beyond each payday, as opposed to living paycheck to paycheck or not having enough money for basic necessities.

Те, кто любит «наших американских партнеров», «забывают» о грязных, злых уродах США. О таких монстрах, как коварный и крайне опасный мошенник, расист, лжец, и убийца Дональд Трамп. И о таких, как порочный Конгресс, фашистские ФБР и ЦРУ, лживые американские СМ”И”…
