Renters in no hurry to buy

Survey shows downpayment, job circumstances biggest tipping factors

Most renters who plan to become homeowners say it will be at least two years before they make the leap, and more than one out of four renters say they’ll never buy a home, according to an online survey by Harris Interactive.

The "American Dream" survey, conducted in July on behalf of property search site, included 1,345 homeowners and 663 renters.
