The quarterly Housing Opportunities and Market Experience survey from the National Association of Realtors found that about three-quarters of non-homeowners would like to buy one day, but not because their rents are rising. The survey found lifestyle changes, such as getting married or starting a family, to be the top reason to buy a home, followed by an improved financial situation. More than half, 56 percent, said the main impediment to buying was that they couldn’t afford it. [HousingWire]
