Falling in Love with Homeownership
No matter how the housing market changes, there are some things about owning a home that never change. When you own your home, most will feel a sense of attachment, through the comfort it gives and having a space that’s genuinely yours.
Over the last few years, we’ve fully embraced the meaning of our homes as we spent more time than ever in them. As a result, the emotional benefits our homes provide have become even more important to us.
As the most recent State of the American Homeowner from Unison puts it:
“. . . one thing has stayed the same: the home continues to be of the utmost importance and a place of security and comfort.”
The same study from Unison notes:
- 91% of homeowners say they feel secure, stable, or successful owning a home
- 64% of American homeowners say living through a pandemic has made their home more important to them than ever
This study also reveals homeowners now love their homes even more:
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) also explains:
“In addition to tangible financial benefits, homeownership brings substantial social benefits for [households], communities, and the country as a whole.”
Owning a home builds your net worth over time, and it gives you and your loved ones a place to thrive. Homeownership helps you connect with your community and contribute to the success of your community in a meaningful way.
