Homeownership rate in the U.S. 2019, by ethnicity

Homeownership rates in the United States in 1st quarter of 2019, by ethnicity

by Jennifer Rudden, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Homeownership rate in the U.S. 2019, by ethnicity The homeownership among white people in the United States was 73.2 percent, the highest out of all ethnicities, in the first quarter of 2019.
American Dream

Part of the “American Dream” is the idea of owning a home. It is seen as a status symbol and an indicator of wealth. People take a lot of pride in owning a home, and hope to do so at the earliest age possible. It is the idea of having a white picket fence with a nuclear family, a dog, and a car or two which is seen as the stereotypical “end goal”. However, in the aftermath of the 2008 recession, the rate of homeownership in the United States fell steadily until 2016. The recession hindered people’s chances of owning a home, due to less credit being available and their own fears about being stuck with a home in negative equity if another recession were to occur. As a result, the homeownership rate in the United States has barely increased in the past few years.

Factors affecting homeownership

Homeownership varies based on different factors. Married-couple families have the highest homeownership rates among different family statuses. Household incomes that range from 100,000 to 149,999 U.S. dollars have the highest homeownership rates.
