An online survey by the National Apartment Association found that 76 percent of consumers said they prefer to rent a home rather than own it, a 5 year-over-year percent increase from 2008. The independent survey, comparing 2008 and 2009 and polling more than 2,000 U.S. adults, also documented an increase from 2008 in the number of all respondents citing the burden of home repairs or maintenance as a primary benefit of renting a home versus owning.
