Report: Homeownership Significantly Higher For White Americans

A report from the National Association of Realtors released Tuesday found that the home ownership rate for minorities is significantly lower in the United States than it is for non-Hispanic white residents.

The Snapshot of Race & Home Buying in America report found:

  • Homeownership among non-Hispanic White Americans was more than 71 percent from 2016 to 2019.
  • It was 41 percent for African Americans.
  • It was 45 percent for Hispanic Americans.
  • For Asian Americans, the rate was more than 53 percent.

Over the last 10 years, homeownership among African Americans increased in just three states: Delaware (by 0.1 percent), South Dakota (17.8 percent) and Vermont (2.2 percent).
