To Quote: "The US Government pushes homeownership in the form of the mortgage interest deduction, low mortgage interest rates and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Most Americans want to own a home, they believe they deserve to own a home and that forces politicians to want the same." As a real estate agent it is my job to help people find and buy the home of their dreams and facilitate the sale and moving on of other dreams.
- Should everyone buy a home?
- Does everyone make a good homeowner?
- If someone can not afford a home or pay for the upkeep, should a home be given to them?
There was a time when I was a renter. I had not decided on a semi-permanent hometown, had no desire to spend my time on lawncare, and had no money to make a large purchase. I rented, I saved, I waited and then years later I purchased my first home. I guess that was "in the good old days" and those days are long gone.
