Renter who want to become owners is on the uptake according to a recent survey.  Six of 10 renters now plan to purchase a home in the next 2 years.  That's good optimism for the homeowners.  In another study, it showed an increase in renters intending to buy that named 3 reasons why:

49% like being the idea of being called a homeowner

44% said it's good fiscal responsibility

36% said they want more space for family

If you're a homeowner, that's a warm sunshine glow on the horizon.  Perhaps that light at the end of the tunnel isn't a freight train after all. :)
