“Once again, home ownership rates have declined and are now at a new low of 63.5%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, as more and more Americans become renters,” said Ella Neyland, president of the Company. “We believe it is based on an evolving lifestyle approach to convenience and flexibility, not necessarily mortgage rates, that are near all-time lows. Millennials and Baby Boomers alike enjoy the convenience of apartment living without the obligations of home ownership, such as mowing the grass. It is increasingly becoming a work-life balance proposition for most of America.”
