The American Dream is still in sight, with Freddie Mac National Mortgage Survey showing loan rates dipping again this week as reported on July 22, 2021.

Mortgage Rates Trend Down

July 22, 2021

Concerns about the Delta variant, and the overall trajectory of the pandemic, are undoubtedly affecting economic growth. While the economy continues to mend, Treasury yields have decreased, and mortgage rates have followed suit. Unfortunately, many homebuyers are unable to take advantage of low rates due to low inventory and high prices.

With mortgage rates at all time record lows and often below 3% it is time to accomplish the American Dream. Homes are often less expensive to buy than to rent these days. The American Dream lives...The American DreamAre you tired of sheltering in place and hunkering down in your apartment? Do you look forward to getting outdoors in the backyard of your very own home?

 

America is great in so many ways. Anyone can become President, Inventor, Athlete, Astronaunt, Doctor and accomplish their dreams of doing. However there is another dream of family and raising the next generation.

 

If you had to take the most common characteristic of an American, what would that be?

A Homeowner! The American Dream
That is right! A homeowner or the desire to be one someday is the American Dream. RISMEDIA reports that 67% of Americans live in owner occupied homes.

The dream to do so is even greater. The front porch, the picket fence, the backyard cookout, Christmas mornings, marking the children's height on the walls, playing catch in the back yard.

Americans feel it is a goal to strive for. A place of belonging of family. A place to return to. A "Home" that they own.

                                                            The American Dream to own a home
 

Home Ownership is Good for America

 Not only is home ownership an important "value" in America it is a significant contributor in our economy. RISMEDIA also reports that "housing is a key driver of our economy, accounting for 15% of our Gross Domestic Product in general. Research shows that for every home purchased, $60,000 is pumped into the economy for furniture, home improvements and related items. Plus homeowners pay 80-90% of individual federal income taxes, contributing to federal programs that benefit all Americans."
