My colleague Yvette Hammett​ does a great job showing how stagnant wages are holding back renters who want to be homeowners.
TAMPA — It may be more affordable to make monthly payments on a house than to rent right now, but not everyone is jumping at the opportunity.

Today county commissioners approved pumping permit described below, but some had reservations about environmental damage to surrounding wilderness preserve and to nearby residents' wells. Friends of the River, an environmental group that has sued the city of Tampa in the past over water issues in the Hillsborough River, said the permit includes language that requires well monitoring to make sure water levels don't fall too low. The county EPC said state water officials have agreed to study whether new water storage project could negate the need to pump the sink at all.
TAMPA — A dispute between environmental groups and the city of Tampa over a groundwater pumping permit in Thonotosassa has been resolved, at least for now.

My colleague Yvette Hammett does great job explaining why, though paying on a house is less expensive than renting, people can't take advantage because of stagnant wages.

Consultants say relocating the Museum of Science and Industry to downtown Tampa would give MOSI an opportunity to rebrand and create excitement about a new facility with up-to-date technology.
Leaving its current home and moving to downtown Tampa would boost the science center's finances.
