Americans overwhelmingly believe owning a home is a good financial decision and a majority of renters say home ownership is one of their highest priorities for the future. The 2013 National Housing Pulse Survey also found that renters are thinking more about purchasing a home now than in past years, while the number of people who say they prefer to rent has declined.
