More Americans are renting — at 65 percent, the homeownership rates has dipped to its lowest level since 1995 — but most homeowners would rather have other homeowners as neighbors, according to a survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Trulia.

The survey found that people — even renters themselves — are more prejudiced against renters than any other group. More people cited homeownership as the most important trait in a neighbor (35 percent), than speaking the same language (33 percent), having the same family structure (16 percent) or having the same race or ethnicity (10 percent).
