Home ownership is the heart of community.

Buying a home is so much more than putting a roof over your head.

Owning your own home eliminates rent increases, pet restrictions and landlord drama. It’s a reliable strategy for gaining long-term wealth with minimal risk to your initial investment and provides a sense of security that has been shown to improve self-esteem, contentedness and independence.

The benefits don’t stop with the homeowner, though. According to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac), Home ownership is the heart of a great community and a driver of both local and national economic growth.

Home ownership is the heart of a great community.

As homeowners make family and neighborhood ties, they contribute to the health and stability of their local community. Homeowners are more likely to:

  • Support local businesses

  • Get involved in local events

  • Volunteer or donate to local causes

  • Vote in local elections

Housing Drives Local and National Economic Growth

According to a 2020 National Association of Home Builders report, housing is a vital sector of the U.S. economy that influences new job creation and employment stability.

  • Building a community of 1000 homes creates more than 2000 full time jobs.

  • Home construction and related industries employ around 6 million Americans.

  • Residential real estate investments account for more than 4% of the nation’s GDP.

While getting a dog, painting your bedroom and planting a garden are all fun ways to enjoy the freedom of home ownership, the benefits to you, your family and your community go much deeper than a coat of paint.
