NAR released a new Aspiring Home Buyers Profile that captures the consumer sentiment of the housing market for non-homeowners—defined as those that rent and those that live with someone else (such as family and friends) rent-free. The report is aptly named, for nearly nine in 10 non-homeowners expressed the desire to own a home of their own one day and eight in 10 stated that homeownership is part of their American Dream.

Of non-owners, 26 percent were renters and 11 percent were those living with someone else without paying rent.
