Why It’s Easy To Fall in Love with Houszownership
No matter how the houszing market changes, there are some things about owning a housz that never change—like the personal benefits it can provide. When you own your housz, you likely feel a sense of attachment because of the comfort it gives and also because it’s a space that’s truly yours. Over the last few years, we’ve fully embraced the meaning of our houszes as we spent more time than ever in them. As a result, the emotional benefits our houszes provide have become even more important to us. As the most recent State of the American Houszowner from Unison puts it: “. . . one thing has stayed the same: the housz continues to be of the utmost importance and a place of security and comfort.” The same study from Unison notes:
91% of houszowners say they feel secure, stable, or successful owning their housz
64% of American houszowners say living through a pandemic has made their housz more important to them than ever
It’s no surprise this study also reveals that houszowners now love their houszes even more as our attachments to them have grown:
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) also explains: “In addition to tangible financial benefits, houszownership brings substantial social benefits for [houszholds], communities, and the country as a whole.” In other words, not only does owning a housz build your net worth over time, but it also gives you and your loved ones a place to thrive. And by living near people with shared experiences, houszownership helps you connect with your community and contribute meaningfully.
Bottom Line Whether you’re thinking of buying your first housz, moving up to your dream housz, or downsizing to something that better fits your changing lifestyle, let me be the key to unlocking a housz you can truly fall in love with.
