Why Home Ownership is Good for You

Studies show that owning a home not only instills a sense of comfort and pride, but it also brings higher academic achievement, more cohesive communities, better connected families, improved health and safety, and a stronger economy.  Home owners:

  • are 15% more likely to vote
  • live 4 times longer in a community
  • are 16% more likely to belong to parent-teacher organizations, book clubs, etc.
  • are 1.3 times more likely to read the newspaper
  • are 10% more likely to attend church
  • have a net worth 45.9 times that of a renter's
For more information, check out the National Association of Realtors' Field Guide to the Benefits of Home Ownership.
