Student loans –the end of homeownership?

The American Interest, commenting on a study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York:

For the first time in ten years, 30-year-olds with a history of student debt are less likely to buy homes and cars than their debtless counterparts. Or in other words, a college degree, while offering a potential career boost, may be holding the young back from acquiring other major markers of adulthood.

Is student debt a driving factor in the declining ownership rate among 30-year olds? Does the group attach less value to ownership or are they merely delaying ownership?
