The State Of The Nation's Housing 2008

The 2008 report includes a four-page executive summary and then more extensive chapters on Housing Markets, Demographic Trends, Homeownership, Rental Housing, and Housing Challenges. A number of appendix tables are included with multi year and age/race/ethnicity data breakdowns. Advocates may find the Housing Challenges section particularly helpful for its finding that there is a growing lack of affordability despite the fact that rents have fallen in many markets and many homeowners have lowered their housing costs by refinancing.

Hitting the Wall: Credit as an Impediment to Homeownership

Author(s): Publisher(s):
The authors find that while homeowner's credit quality improved between 1989 and 2001, renter's credit quality declined significantly. The report further indicates that the decline is more pronounced among the young, those with low income, and ethnic minorities. Advocates may find this report helpful for its review of research covering the intersection of credit and homeownership. It also indicates that education may be critical to credit quality and homeownership opportunities.
