Middle-Income Households Gain Trillions in Housing Wealth in a Decade

A new study from the National Association of REALTORS® – Housing Wealth Gains for the Rising Middle-Class Markets – examines the distribution of housing wealth between 2010 and 2020 across income groups and in 917 metropolitan or micropolitan areas. NAR found that during those 10 years, nearly 980,000 middle-income households became homeowners.

Within that timeframe, total housing wealth for this income group surged by $2.1 trillion. To read an analysis of the study, click here.
