Key Points:

  • This has allowed the US to achieve similar levels of homeownership to other developed countries, despite higher levels of income inequality.
  • Affordability targets introduced by the 1992 GSE Act helped reduce the negative impact of income inequality on homeownership by between 40% and 60%, and also helped the US maintain high homeownership rates.
