LGBT renters cite discrimination, affordability and confusion as obstacles to homeownership

Freddie Mac found a disturbing trend in homeownership rates: Members of the LGBT community are less likely to own a home, are more mobile, fear discrimination when buying a home, and prioritize living in LGBT-safe neighborhoods. The study revealed that 46% of LGBT renters fear discrimination in the home buying process and that when members of the LGBT community are determining where to live, their top three priorities are price, safety and LGBT friendliness.
