According to the National Association of Realtors®’ 2017 National Housing Pulse Survey, 84% of Americans now believe that purchasing a home is a good financial decision. This is the highest percentage since 2007 – before the housing crisis. Those surveyed pointed out five major reasons why they believe home ownership is a good financial decision:

1. Home ownership means the money you spend on housing goes towards building equity, rather than to a landlord

2. Home ownership creates the opportunity to pay off a mortgage and own your home by the time you retire

3. Home ownership is an investment opportunity that builds long-term wealth and increases net worth

4. Home ownership means a stable and predictable monthly mortgage payment

5. Home ownership allows for various deductions on federal, state, and local income taxes


The survey also revealed that the majority of Americans strongly agree that home ownership helps create safe, secure, and stable environments.

Bottom Line

Home ownership has always been and still is a crucial part of the American Dream.
