Basic Info

US Homeownership Rate reflects the percentage of US homes that are owned by their occupants, which is calculated by dividing the number of owner-occupied homes by the total number of occupied homes. The home ownership rate has historically been government-promoted, encouraging Americans to pursue home ownership, reaching a peak of roughly 69% home ownership throughout 2004, but declining in the following years as foreclosures increased and home values fell during the US Housing Crisis.

US Home Ownership Rate is at 65.40%, compared to 65.60% last quarter and 67.90% last year. This is higher than the long term average of 65.25%.
