Northeast Ohio Short Sales: The Homeownership Rate continues to drop

Northeast OH – Barron’s Magazine recently had an article titled “Renter Nation.” In it, they detailed the various factors at work that will reduce the homeownership rate in America.

The homeownership rate has already dropped from 69.2% to 66.9% today. Here is one of the factors Barron’s said would cause the homeownership rate to drop. Experts project that the average American Household will become younger over the next decade.

Younger households are more likely to rent versus purchase a home. However, the article missed another big factor. So many people have ruined their credit and can’t qualify for a mortgage.

How many people in America are doing a loan modification, short sale, or let their home be foreclosed upon? It’s hard to buy another home when that happens. Demographics, the lousy economy, and the credit disaster combined mean that demand for homes may stay low for a long time.

The positive news is that all of these factors have propped up the rental market. Rental rates are actually increasing in most areas, despite the slow economy.

I think one of the reasons this is happening is because banks are so reluctant to modify loans.

And, even thought rental rates have increased, they are usually lower than owning a home bought at the peak of the market. Thinking about a short sale?
