One begins to wonder if the Federal government has adopted a policy of renting rather homeownership. It sure seems like it.
Since the peak of the housing bubble, renters have skyrocketed.
And largely the growth in single family residences (SFR) being rented.
New homes sold as a percentage of the population is back at 1982 levels.
Well, I doubt if rentership is the formal Federal housing policy.
