    People paying off student loans can’t come up with a down payment but can come up with a security deposit.

    That’s one factor. Other include:

    – Lack of rising wages.
    – Milennials not taking the bait on wealth accumulation due to home ownership.
    – On a percentage basis, significantly less parents willing to put up down payments for twentysomethings.
    – Change in values (convenience vs. pride of ownership, etc.).
    – Tequila!!!
