More People Are Choosing to Rent

More than 76 percent of people say they would prefer to rent a home than buy one, up 5 percent from 2009, according to this year’s survey from the National Apartment Association.
The survey also calculated that 60 percent of renters plan to continue renting in 2011, with only 12 percent planning to buy a home in the next year.

Some 64 percent of renters cited having no responsibility for major repairs or maintenance as the primary reason they prefer to rent, followed by 33 percent who cited not being impacted by an unpredictable real estate market or susceptible to foreclosure.
