If you live in Charlotte call Nina Hollander to be your agent if you want to buy a home.

If you are renting a home you should consider buying a home this month. If you are renting in Bucks County call me for a free consultation. I will explain the home buying process. You can then decide if you would like to buy a home or continue to rent.

Owning A Home Is Still The American Dream

June is National Homeownership Month...  a great time to ask if owning a home is still the American Dream.

 

The famous quote by Walt Whitman, “A man is not a whole and complete man, unless he owns a house and the ground it stands on,” still very much describes how the majority of Americans feel about the fact that owning a home is an integral part of attaining the American Dream.

 

Americans believe strongly in homeownership, as evidenced by a Pew Reseach  survey, which asked "How important is homeownership to achieving the American Dream?” The results showed 91% of responders said homeownership was either essential or important to the American Dream.

  • 43% said homeownership was essential to the American Dream
  • 48% said homeownership was important to the American Dream
  • 9% said it was not important

 

 

Owning A Home Still The American Dream

 

 

Homeownership Rates Continue To Increase

 

Statistics of home ownership rates as of the first quarter of 2018 show the percentage of homeowners in America steadily climbing back up since hitting a 50-year low in 2016. The homeownership rate in the first quarter of 2018 was 64.2%, higher than last year’s 63.6%. The rate of home ownership has ticked up for five consecutive quarters (at the same time, the number of new renter households has fallen for four consecutive quarters). Owner-occupied households grew by 1.345 million from a year ago.

Good morning Gita. Most should own if they can. Some are best off renting for various reasons. Enjoy your day!
