Renters By Choice

A lot of statistics in the attached but worth spending a few minutes to absorb, particularly if you’re an apartment owner or a renter. One-in-five renters expect to be renters for life. Approximately two thirds of renters say renting ‘fits their current lifestyle.’ This is exemplified in the article as it states that one-third of renters have the financial horsepower to purchase a home but prefer renting (“lifestyle renters”). One-fourth of renters have credit scores of 750 or above, and could likely qualify for a home loan, but remain renters. There are numerous other statistics that, if nothing else, help one to better understand the mindset and attitude of many renters today.
