- The foreign-born population has significantly lower ownership rates (43% were home owners in 2013) than the UK-born (69%).
- The foreign-born population is almost three times as likely to be in the private rental sector (38% were in this sector in 2013), compared to the UK-born (14%).
- UK-born and foreign-born individuals have similar levels of participation in social housing (about 17% of UK-born individuals and 18% of foreign-born individuals were in social housing during 2013).
- Recent evidence suggests that immigration decreases house prices in England and Wales. This impact is likely to be the result of UK-born residents moving out of the areas with a large migrant concentration.
