According to The National Association of Realtors (NAR), average rent in the 70 major metro areas across the US increased by 15 percent between 2009 and 2013. Here in Seattle, it was actually over 32 percent. Coupled with a rise in income for median age renters of only 15 percent, it's no surprise Seattlites are flocking to rentals. In fact, the local percentage change in home owners is down 14.36 percent, which is more than New York City. [BBH, Image: Joe Mabel]
