Now, what do we think about home as an ‘investment’?

Our Home as an Investment

Though most people purchase a home for non-financial reasons, everyone realizes there is a money component to homeownership.

Here is what people said on this issue in Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey for the second quarter of 2011:

  • 65% of the general population (and 67% of homeowners) believe that homeownership is a ‘safe’ investment.
  • 56% believe that homeownership has more potential as an investment than any other traditional asset class.
  • 69% think that now is a good time to buy a home … and this number has increased in each of the last two quarters.
