EXCERPT: “Just 31.1 percent of single mothers nationwide owned homes in 2017, on par with the 2016 rate and down from 35.5 percent in 2010, according to a new report from Redfin, the technology-powered real estate brokerage. At 63.9 percent, the overall homeownership rate for households across the country was more than double that of single mothers, though it was also down from nearly 70 percent in 2010. Over the same time period, the national median home price rose by more than 40 percent. The metros with the highest rates of homeownership among single moms tend to be relatively affordable. McAllen, Texas, where the typical home sells for $165,000, has the highest homeownership rate among metro areas with at least 20,000 single mothers in 2017, with 46.6 percent of single moms owning homes. That’s followed by Salt Lake City(41.7%), Grand Rapids (41.5%) and Minneapolis (40.3%).” FULLSTORY: https://prn.to/2IFTg7X
