The advantages and disadvantages of home ownership for low-moderate income households

Summary

This project investigated whether, and to what extent, the advantages and disadvantages of home ownership are experienced differentially by households with different levels of income, in particular by low-moderate income households (amongst the lowest 40% of equivalised incomes) compared to households in the middle-upper income ranges. The study centres on households who are already home owners, including those who have outstanding loans secured against their property (purchasers) and those who have not (outright owners).
