The Importance of Homeownership to the American Dream

The Importance of Homeownership to the American Dream

The Importance of Homeownership to the American Dream | MyKCM

For centuries, people in this country have seen homeownership as part of the American Dream. Whether they were born here or immigrated from another country, they wanted to own a piece of America. With so many prominent societal changes over the last few decades, it is fair to ask if people in America still feel the same way about owning a home. The answer was made abundantly clear in two separate reports released earlier this month.

In their market trends report, As Housing Trends Shift, So Does Renter, Buyer and Seller SentimentTrulia revealed that:

“After two years of no change, the share of Americans who say that homeownership is part of their personal “American Dream” ticked up from 72 percent to 73 percent of Americans.”

At the same time, the National Association of Realtors released their Aspiring Home Buyers Profile. As the report explained:

“For both homeowners and non-homeowners alike, homeownership is strongly considered a part of the American Dream. For non-owners, roughly 75 percent reported that homeownership is part of their American Dream. For owners, nine in 10 believe it is part of their American Dream.”

Bottom Line

The belief among the vast majority of Americans, whether they rent or own, is that purchasing a home still remains a major step toward accomplishing the American Dream.

McKinney's Westridge ranked in top 50 in US!

by Christie Cannon

Nationally acclaimed John Burns Real Estate Consulting ranked the top 50 Master-Planned Communities in the US.  McKinney's own (and ever growing) Westridge ranked among the elite of this list. While TX accounted for a whopping 1/3 of the communities listed, Westridge was the only greater Dallas suburb to make the cut!  A renewed interest in large master-planned communities in our area has resulted from stronger buyer confidence, low pre-owned inventory, renewed investor confidence, & a new-home contruction boom.  With communities such as Celina's Light Farms & Frisco's own Phillips Creek Ranch.... perhaps 2014 will see more North TX communities making the grade.
