Home ownership as an Investment is Far from Dead !

Buying

Following last year’s real estate market was like riding a roller-coaster. The market started off strong in 2018 and then softened before finishing with a mild flurry. However, one thing that did not waiver was America’s belief that owning a home makes sense from a financial standpoint.

An end-of-the-year survey by the Federal Reserve Bank’s Center for Micro economic Data revealed that:

“The majority of households continue to view housing as a good financial investment.”
And that percentage has increased over the last three years.
