The American Homeownership Dream is officially dead. Long live the New Normal American Dream: Renting.
According to the latest quarterly homeownership data released by the Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans who have a house declined from 65.2% to 65.1%: the lowest since 1995.
Those wishing to brave the New Normal world will have to spend a lot for rent.
A record lot in fact: the median asking rent for US vacant housing units just hit an all time high of $735 per month.
The pain is most acute for those renting in the Northeast, where the median rent soared by $65 to a record high of $961.
So rents are soaring.>>
