Amazing Benefits Of Home Ownership In Hoboken

March 17, 2011

Owning a home has been an American Dream for as long as anyone can remember, and even during the past few years when the economy has been down, it has still been part of the American Dream. In fact, 67% of homes in America are owner-occupied. According to the National Association of Realtors, there are many benefits to homeownership in Hoboken.
● It is a fact those who are homeowners are happier and healthier than those that are not. Also, homeowners have more of a feeling of control over their own lives.
● The homeowners of America pay 80% to 90% of federal income taxes. These taxes help to contribute to numerous federal programs which benefit everyone in America.
● Those who rent can expect to see, on average, an increase of 3% on their monthly rent each year. Homeowners have the benefit of fixed rate mortgage loans and enjoy a steady monthly payment for the term of their loans.
● Another known benefit of homeownership is that children of homeowners are more apt to participate in organized activities which means less time being couch potatoes.
Homeowners tend to be more involved with volunteering and contribute more to their neighborhoods.
● Moving can be a lot of work and those that rent, tend to move more frequently than those who own their own home. The stability achieved by homeowners not frequently moving, will help reduce crime and do their part to help with the overall upkeep of the neighborhood.
● Maybe the best reason for homeownership is that children of those who own their own home do well in school and stay in school longer than children of those who rent.

Home ownership in Hoboken is also doing its part to help the economy. The housing industry makes up 15 % of the Gross Domestic Product in the United States.
