According to a recent article by Realtor Mag, an improving economy appears to be leading towards a better housing market. The article explains that while income is lower than in 2007, from 2012 to 2013, there was a 1.1 percent increase in income.
As young adults continue to see an increase in salary, analysts seem hopeful that home ownership among this group will grab the market soon, the article says.
In addition, the article says that “the rate of housing cost burdens among young owner-occupants continues to fall… fewer than one in four young home owners spent more than 30 percent of household income on housing expenses.”
This means that young adults are living within their means and living in housing that aligns best with their incomes.
