Few Homeowners Wish They Were Renting Instead

The dream, and preference of homeownership, was stated decisively in the new Zillow Aspirations Report where only 8% of homeowners wish they were renting instead. Conversely, renters are much more regretful with 45% of them regretting renting over buying. Renters biggest regret? 52% of them want to be able to customize a home that worked with how they live and that they weren't building equity in their own home.

Repairs and unexpected maintenance did top the list of homeowner inconveniences that they prefer to do without as well as undesirable home finishes and layout and too much yard, which would make a newly constructed home where owners have more control much more desirable.
