Skyrocketing rents and surging homeownership costs are forcing many prospective buyers to remain in the rental market. With the national median existing-home price recently exceeding $400,000, and assuming a down payment of 3.5%, buyers would need to come up with $14,000 down toward the typical median-priced home. That’s a significant challenge for millions of renters, whom have a median savings of $1,500 or less, according to Harvard researchers’ State of the Nation’s Housing 2022 report.
