Why the Homeownership Rate is Misleading

The New York Times

The nation’s homeownership rate fell to 64.9 percent in 2013, the lowest level since 1995. But is that percentage misleading? One expert says the headship rate is the more important number because it determines the total number of households, so a rise in the headship rate means more new households. The headship rate is expected to increase as more young adults move out.

Moyers & Company

Interstate migration in America has remained at a mere 1.7 percent, which is far lower than the 3.5 percent mobility rate the country experienced in the 1950s.

How Can 2014 Home Sales Outpace 2013?

HousingWire
