For generations now, our national values have placed an emphasis on home ownership. Renters were the people who were rootless or just not being quite ready to "settle down." As home ownership has become less of a financial asset and more of a liability over the last few years, there has been a shift in the very fabric of what renting means in our society.

We predict that in 2011, the demographics of who rents will continue to change, along with the place renting has in our social values system. The tools renters have at their disposal will evolve in kind.
