As the housing affordability gap widens, middle-income families are especially hard-hit, and these families can no longer qualify to buy homes, and rising rental rates force them to use far more than the standard 25 percent of their incomes for housing, leaving them with no equity or tax write-offs to offset the expenditures.
(A) and these families can no longer qualify to buy homes, and
(B) since these families can no longer afford to buy homes, furthermore
(C) for these families can no longer afford to buy homes, yet
(D) and these families can no longer afford to buy homes; however,
(E) and these families can no longer afford to buy homes, for

Out of furthermore, yet and however --- furthermore suits the best..as it is adding one more reason...and is apt...
Insight please.

This is a good question. I know OA (from SC1000), but I can't fully understand why it's correct, because I think it changes the meaning.

I would choose E - "for' begins explaining the reason

I would go for C.

(A) and these families can no longer qualify to buy homes, and - two "ands" make it awkward
(B) since these families can no longer afford to buy homes, furthermore - it should end with "the" , furthermore rising rates does not go well.
(C) for these families can no longer afford to buy homes, yet - hold
(D) and these families can no longer afford to buy homes; however, - however contradicts the idea
(E) and these families can no longer afford to buy homes, for - again this should have ended with "the" , for rising rates ... does not go well.
