Home is where the Heart is; Happy Valentine's Day Ocean County, NJ!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Coldwell Banker Flanagan Realty


As the population of Ocean County, NJ, observes Valentine’s Day, in their own personal way today, we thought we would take the time to recognize the “Love Affair” our nation still has with the Dream of Home-Ownership!

The basis of our post today is a recent survey conducted by Trulia, which shows that 70 PERCENT OF AMERICANS VIEW HOMEOWNERSHIP AS PART OF PERSONAL AMERICAN DREAM!

This report was brought to our attention by our friends at Keeping Current Matters, in their wonderful post, “Own Thy Own Home”! Basically, the survey revealed the following:

  • 70% of Americans still view home-ownership as being part of their American Dream.
  • 78% say their homes are the best investment they ever made.
  • 88% of 18-34 year old renters aspire to be homeowners.

Trulia’s Survey revealed much more interesting data and we hope you take the time to read it in it’s entirety but perhaps the most revealing statement was the sub-title of the survey itself; Despite Nightmarish Housing Market, 78 Percent of Homeowners Describe Home as the Best Investment They Ever Made!

What does this mean for Ocean County, NJ?

We are a “snap-shot” of Americana.  Coldwell Banker Flanagan Realty believes the dream of home-ownership is alive and well and beating in the hearts of the next generation of Home-Owners!  All the factors that make NOW quite possibly the “best time to buy a home in the history of real estate”, are in place.  Will you make your dream a reality?

Happy Valentine’s Day, Ocean County!
