Owning a home, The American Dream…right? To millions of Americans, having a place to call our own is so desirable, and often a crowning moment in our lives. But is it for practical reasons, like not wanting to “throw away” money by paying rent? Is it wanting to have a place to build a more stable financial future? Or maybe it’s more about feeling safe, settled in, and comfortable with our life and where we dwell?
One of our wonderful associate brokers, Cathy, shared a great post with me this week. I found it quite interesting to learn that in a survey conducted by The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University, the top 4 reasons respondents gave for wanting to own a home were more about feelings than finances.
