The Field Guide to the Benefits of Home Ownership by The National Association of Realtors
We just ran across one of the best resources for anyone looking to purchase a home and all current homeowners.
The National Association of Realtors released a great online pamphlet called “The Field Guide to the Benefits of Home Ownership” that covers five major areas:
- Higher Academic Achievement
- More Cohesive Communities
- Better Connected Families
- Improved Heath and Safety
- Stronger Economy
We wanted to share a few of our favorite tidbits.
Homeowners are 28% more likely to vote, will live 4 times longer in a community, and be 1.3 times more likely to read (our favorite pastime). In addition, children of homeowners are 20% less likely to become teenage mothers.
There is so much great information on this great online resource that you should check it out for yourself – “The Field Guide to the Benefits of Home Ownership“.
