Excuse me but owned and rented are not on the same page. Anyone with a job can rent but it takes farther more responsibility to own. Look at any area of Salisbury. Neighborhoods that used to have had home ownership that is mostly rental houses now are going downhill.

I agree 1:45 and quite alot of the ramshacked huts ought to be torn down or atleast forced to comply with zoning codes or face heavy fines swiftly and that money set in a fund for homeowners who are truly struggling to make exterior repairs. And I mean owner occupied homes and not the slumlords who would be salivating at the thought and attempt to take advantage of such a fund.
