7 Social Benefits Of Home Ownership

We knew owning a home had its benefits. But we didn’t know it went beyond financial independence. According to the California Assocation of Realtors there are 9 social benefits categorized in three different ways.

Educational Success:

Children of homeowners tend to have higher achievement levels of math and reading.

They also tend to have less behavioral problems

Teens whose parents own a home are more likely to stay in school.

Civic Participation:

Homeowners vote more.

Homeowners spend more hours volunteering.

Homeowners also get to know more people in their neighborhood.

Health Benefits:

New homeowners report higher quality of life.

They also have higher levels of self esteem

And a greater feeling of control over their lives.

We found this research to be insightful and exciting. Exciting because we get a hand in the improving the lives of our clients!

When you are ready to buy, we are ready to help!
