Originally penned by JunePiper-Brandon, I always feel badly for the buyers who've refused to buy, thinking prices were too high - it's happened at least a dozen times over the 18 year span of my career. If they would have just purchased something affordable, and held on tight through the downturns, history would have rewarded them aplenty. I read recently the average homeowner has 40 times the net worth of a renter. Don't plan to rent your whole life! Make plans to own your own future...
Is The American Dream Dying?
A recent study shows that 25% of Millennials have given up trying to buy a home because buying their dream home is too costly. But, if you ask anyone that lives in a lovely house, they didn't start there, they started off in a cheaper property and used that as a stepping stone to the next one, and so on. The reality is the American Dream is not dead, you just have to start with a cheaper property and grow from there.
If you read my blog a few days ago, What Did It Cost You to Keep Renting? you see how much equity homeowners acquired over the last few years and how they could use that equity to "trade up" to a larger and more beautiful home or even use that property as an investment and create even more generational wealth.
The average homeowner moves every 5-7 years and with each move, they purchase a larger and more beautiful home until they become empty nesters and then sell and purchase a retirement home.
