Real Estate Shines as an Investment in 2015

A survey by The Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University reveals that when a family is buying a home they consider the financial benefits of homeownership along with the social benefits. The survey mentions things like:

  2. Homeownership provides a good financial opportunity

  3. Owning a home helps you building family wealth

  4. Buying a home is investing in your retirement

  5. Home equity gives you something to borrow against
