The American Dream
The simple truth is, the American dream of owning your own home is not only alive and
well, but the opportunities to make this dream a reality have never been better. Interest rates
are the lowest they’ve been in history. Property values are the lowest they’ve been in years.
In fact, the National Association of Realtors® Affordability index reached an all-time, state
high in the first quarter of 2012.
But beyond the financial aspects of buying a home are benefits that can't be measured
or placed on a graph. You simply can’t quantify the pride someone feels from owning a home.
Imagine the freedom to paint a room any color you like, or being able to hang a tire swing in
the backyard, or getting to hang a picture frame on any wall you like, and not worry about the
holes it may leave behind.
But there’s more. Research from government entities, academia and nonprofit groups have
discovered societal benefits of owning a home include more stable communities, greater academic
achievement, higher property values, and lower crime rates. Don’t miss the opportunity.
