Student loan debt is hurting the housing market, survey finds

Source: Washington Post

Nearly three-quarters of people who are repaying student loans say their debt is hindering them from buying a home. The survey found that many would-be homeowners are increasingly burdened by student debt, according to the survey conducted by the National Association of REALTORS® and the nonprofit American Student Assistance. Seventy-one percent of those surveyed said their student loan debt is delaying them from buying a home. More than half said they expect that delay to last longer than five years. Because of their student debt, 69 percent said they don’t feel financially secure enough to buy a home, while 80 percent said they can’t save for a down payment.
