Renters Still Believe Homeownership is a Priority

Thanks for all of you following from www.facebook.com/indypropertysource and twitter handle of @indypropsource!

I read an interesting article today from the National Association of REALTORS about home ownership expectations. As a real estate professional, I advocate responsible home ownership. I want to lead with that. I certainly think that owning a home is a great thing. While its part of the American Dream, I don't believe its all of it. Its certainly attainable by everyone but each person's situation varies. It is a great responsibility too so I feel that potential homeowners should be educated. Where else better to do that than with their local REALTOR.

We as real estate professionals must advocate that potential buyers are ready for this big decision and help them get there. We can't make financial decisions for our clients but let's make sure we refer them to good lenders, CPAs, attorneys, etc to help them make that decision.

The statistics in the article were than surprisingly renters (from 63% roughly to 72%) now say that homeownership is a good decision. Not surprising that its thought of like that but just in the timing with markets the way they are now. So keep in mind how many people out there know its important to own a home and how we can help them.

I love working with first time homebuyers! Their excitement is contagious! Your point about forming a good team is imperative though... and critical to having our time be well spent vs. volunteer work! I do think that education is a must -- especially for this group of buyers. As i recently told one, young, first time home buyer -- "Things will need to be maintained. That's part of homeownership".
