The U.S. homeownership rate declined in the fourth quarter of 2023, sliding 0.3% from the third quarter to 65.7% at year’s end, according to the Census Bureau’s Housing Vacancy Survey, as higher interest rates and a limited supply of inventory put homeownership out of reach for some buyers. The latest reading fell short of the 25-year average rate of 66.4%, with the less than 35 age group experiencing the largest quarterly decline in homeownership rate, at 0.6%.
