One of our greatest fears: Housing costs

Most Americans Are Worried About Losing Their Housing

While housing affordability isn't getting much play in the elections, it is a key concern for most Americans, with no easy solutions, according to a recent City Lab article.

With so many families living paycheck to paycheck, it is no surprise that housing anxiety is so prevalent. Yet solutions to the housing affordability crisis are not necessarily popular with voters. One solution is to build, baby, build, which could help reduce rental costs in cities with high demand. The NFP Foundation survey finds that 65 percent of Americans pay more than 30 percent of their income toward housing, meaning they are cost burdened.
