Why Homeownership?

Why Homeownership?

Homeownership is an important vehicle in creating economic stability and opportunity for American households. It is a way to accumulate wealth through what is most families’ greatest asset. Consistent payments lead to improved credit scores, greater financial stability and increased resources for retirement.

In addition, owning a house offers a safe, grounded, healthy place to grow a family often with a mortgage payment that is less than the rent payments most families are making. A house can fulfill the greatest hope you have for yourself and your family offering a place to call home for the rest of your lives.

We encourage all families and individuals to consider the possibility of becoming a homeowner. With a solid credit score and a stable income becoming a homeowner is entirely attainable.
