I would still call renters paying too much house poor, or apartment poor.

I call them people on the verge of not being able to pay their rent, which means that landlords will start having to liquidate their holding at the same time; thus, driving the entire housing market into the ground.

Think about one of the main industries currently at risk: Retail

Retail goes under, these goes a large portion of the renter market.

House-poor is house-poor, whether you rent or own.

A certain amount of money goes to "housing." Housing is your shelter. Call it housing-poor, if you'd rather.

Have you ever seen anything that didn't spell impending doom and collapse in the near future? Like ever?

You need pessimists to balance out the optimists.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that like most end-is-nigh types your definition of "optimist" is anyone who doesn't think every world event and news item is proof of impending collapse.

I would call it house poor too. In most case people use homeownership as house poor, but renters can be house poor when rent is above their means.
