NAR Hosting Student Debt Event on Monday


On Monday NAR and SALT will be co-hosting an industry and press briefing at the NAR D.C. office to release the findings of a new joint study looking at student debt’s impact on homeownership.

The survey takes a look at only student debt borrowers on-time in their repayment and asks them about their housing plans.

The findings (to be released during the event) are quite astonishing. 71% of non-homeowners in repayment said their student debt has delayed their ability to buy, and over half expect to be delayed over five years. A large share are also still living with family because of their debt.

Full results will be released on Monday. Stay tuned!
