Homeownership of Young Adults - 7/17/14

Homeownership has been falling over the last few years in much of the United States, but the decline among younger adults has been particularly striking.  The homeownership rate in the 25 to 34 age group fell by nearly 8 percentage points from 2004 to 2013 according to a recent report from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies.  As pointed out by writer Lisa Prevost, over the same period, student debt surged by more than 400 percent to top $1 trillion, a run-up that dwarfs the surge in mortgage debt during the housing bubble.  The connection between student debt and declining homeownership appears unassailable based on these data.
