Stay Informed with New Surveys and Publications
Use new surveys and publications to stay in touch with the latest housing trends, including:
- "Profile of Today's Renter" is a quarterly survey among renters by Freddie Mac. This quarter's results show that the majority of renting Baby Boomers, Millennials and Gen Xers view renting as more affordable than homeownership. The survey also reports that renters of single-family homes are the most likely homebuyer, with 52 percent stating they plan to purchase a home in the next three years compared to 36 percent of apartment renters.
- "State of Hispanic Homeownership Report" is a publication of the Hispanic Wealth Project and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Brokers that highlights the homeownership growth and household formation rates of Hispanics as well as their purchasing power in the United States.
