EXCERPT: “Active-duty military and veteran households are, on average, better able to afford housing than a typical U.S. household, according to a new Zillow® analysis. Nationally, it would take 29.6% of the typical household income to pay the median rent – just below the 30% rule of thumb for affordable housing. Active-duty military households would spend 24.9% of their income on that median rent, while a typical household with one or more veterans would spend 20.1%. The results are similar for homeowners. The typical household in the U.S. would spend 16% of its income on a mortgage payment for the median home, while active-duty military households would spend 13.4% and veterans would spend 10.9%.” FULL STORY:
