Home Ownership Matters

“Home ownership has a significant impact on net worth, educational achievement, civic participation, health, and overall quality of life. And, home ownership helps create jobs—lots of them—right here at home.”

Home Ownership matters…to people, to communities, and to America. Why?

  • For every two homes sold, one job is created in the U.S.
  • Each purchase generates as much as $60,000 in economic activity over time.
  • Owning a home saves you money!

An analysis done by Deutsche Bank AG reported that falling home prices and rising rents have contributed to the biggest cost savings for homeowners relative to renters in at least two decades.
Rents averaged 14.9 percent more than home-loan payments during the last three months of 2011… The gap widened from the third quarter by 8.1 points, and rentals were more costly for the fifth consecutive quarter.
