Monday Market Update: Surveys Says… Californians Value These Benefits of Homeownership

Your Weekly Market Update Is Back

We are posting our ‘Monday’ Market Update a day late in honor of Veteran’s Day yesterday; we wanted to ensure that those whom have served (and those in active service) received our utmost gratitude and reverence for their service.

For those seeking their weekly informational update on our blog, please find a just-released infographic below from the California Association of Realtors® regarding the reported modern day benefits of homeownership in our state.

If none of these advantages of owning a home are earth shattering… that is exactly the point! While much has changed with regards to how homes are marketed, what lending looks like these days and yes… affordability compared to when our parents bought homes, there is one steadfast belief. Homeownership is still the American Dream with close to half of surveyed Californians considering individual stability & security the #1 benefit. Wealth accumulation and protection from rising rents are (very close) 2nd and 3rd reported advantages, and in reality the reasons cited are even more powerful when viewed in combination than considered alone.
