American Dream

Home ownership is a good thing.

The concept of home ownership is often under attack by certain segments of our society.



Home ownership gives the owner a sense of pride.


It provides them with a better place to raise their family.


It gives them a more private place to live their life with fewer restrictions as to how they do so.


It gives them a greater sense of community and a neighborhood to call their own.


It provides everyone with tax benefits and is a form of forced savings. 

Agents should stop selling investment and start selling benefits.

Check out these 6 top benefits of home ownership


Home ownership is a good thing.

Richard and Beth, I could not agree more. Some of the younger people, however, want locations with high prices that forces them to rent. Enjoy your day!

Good morning Beth. A vote today can perpetuate the American Dream. For this country to have the lowest level of home ownership in the last 20 years is just insane.

Wonderful job with your post and sharing all the reasons to own a home.

Owned once, not for me.  I'm a much better "renter".

I agree. I've spoken with renters recently who like the flexibility of moving with ease and don't like the idea of being tied down, despite the benefits that owning provides.

When we become homeowners we have taken a giant step to being masters of our own destiny.

Hi Beth -- and home ownership protect one from uncontrollable rent increases, a huge issue in San Francisco, the Peninsula and Silicon Valley.

This blog is a great resource for prospective home buyers.

Sadly, student loan debt and career uncertainty have caused many young people to defer their marriage and home purchase.

Excellent post Richard & Beth. Everyone in America should be able to be a home owner. You present these facts well.

Yes I just cannot believe anyone would choose to stay a renter without even trying to qualify once again.
