Benefits of Home Ownership
In this turbulent economy some question the wisdom of home ownership. Below are some time tested and valuable reasons home ownership is important for our families and neighborhoods. Consider these facts:
Crime is lower in neighborhoods with high owner occupancy rates. Families that grow up in home ownership environments are less likely to commit crimes.
Homeowners are more involved in their children's school. Kids who grow up in owner occupied homes get better grades, stay in school, and eventually do better in their careers.
Homeowners move less often, and become more involved in their neighborhoods. Homeowners also play a bigger role in democratic government and are more likely to vote. Homeownership helps stabilize neighborhoods and strengthen communities.
Homeowner families receive more consistent health care and experience less depression, drug addiction, alcoholism, and suicides. Homeowners report higher self esteem, and studies have discovered that daughters of homeowners have a 20% lower rate of teen pregnancy. Homeowners even have a longer life expectancy.
Homeownership helps stimulate the economy and generates jobs.
