Fannie Mae's Economic & Strategic Research Group released a new research study that investigates renters’ attitudes toward renting, homeownership and the future of housing. Data from the survey showed that today’s renters tend to be satisfied with renting, but about half hope to own someday.
Moreover, renters see renting and owning as delivering two distinct lifestyle benefits. The vast majority of renters think people are better off owning if they seek control, privacy and security or seek to raise a family or invest wisely, but they give the edge to renting when it comes to budget, stress, and making the best decision in today’s economy.
