The Benefits Of Home Ownership

The benefits of homeownership are many. Perhaps most important is that owning a home provides an unparalleled sense of well-being, security and achievement. Moreover, homeownership has always been, and continues to be, the single best long-term investment for most Americans. It is a primary source of wealth and financial security for many households, helping to provide for education, retirement and more.  When young people buy homes, they have a better chance having a home paid for by the time they reach retirement.  Home ownership in retirement years, when most people are living on a fixed income, provides for a more financially secure retirement.

Almost all (96 percent) of the people polled in a survey conducted earlier this year for the National Association of Home Builders by two nationally known polling firms said they are happy with their decision to own a home.

The nationwide survey of 1,500 people who are likely to vote in the 2012 elections also found that a significant majority — 76 percent — think owning a home is the best long-term investment they can make and is worth the ups and downs of the housing market. Among people who don’t currently own a home, 68 percent hope to own a home in the future, the poll found.
