[A guest blog post from NAR's Manager of the Housing Opportunity Program, Wendy Penn]
NAR recently released the 2013 National Housing Pulse Survey. The findings show that a strong majority (78%) of renters say that homeownership is a priority for them in the future, with 51% calling it one of their highest priorities.
That is an impressive statistic, but it is not surprising. There is a reason homeownership is called the American Dream. Home is where we make memories, build our futures, and feel comfortable and secure. It’s no wonder that most renters want to own a home. So where are these renters and how can REALTORS® help them along the path toward homeownership?
