For decades, owning a home has been one of the pillars of the American Dream. And, according to recent data, it looks like it still is.
According to the 2019 edition of the Aspiring Home Buyers Profile from the National Association of Realtors, 75 percent of non-homeowners said that owning their own home was a key part of their American Dream. For people who already own homes, that number is even higher — a whopping 90 percent.
The Takeaway: The American Dream of owning a home is alive and well. If you want to make your American Dream a reality, now is the time to make a move and purchase a home of your own.
