Irrespective of who wins the election, wealth will be more unequally distributed four years from now. The reasoning is that rental households have been rising while the number of homeowners has not increased. Homeowners over the long haul build wealth as they pay down their mortgage. A portion of the monthly mortgage goes towards principal reduction. Now, in addition to steadily paying down the mortgage debt over time, home price growth will help enlarge the housing equity. Home prices have clearly turned for the better and this rise in price will add to homeowners’ wealth.
