Home ownership is not only the crown atop The American Dream, private property ownership is the very cornerstone of American liberty, upon which our free enterprise system and indeed our republican form of government have stood for almost 250 years.
Protection of private property is essential for the preservation of individual freedom. When individuals do not possess secure property rights, dependency on government for the essentials of life become inevitable.
America’s Founding Fathers believed that private property ownership existed long before government in ancient common law.
“Home ownership has long been accepted as a core component of the American dream, as it confers several economic benefits on homeowners, including the ability to accumulate wealth by accessing credit and building equity,” according to Forbes magazine.
“Home ownership is proving to be a cornerstone of financial security,” says the Mullin Group of Berkshire Hathaway. “Two major personal wealth goals, home ownership and net worth, work hand-in-hand. If you’re looking for financial security, home ownership should be a top priority."
Mark Fleming, Chief Economist for First American says, “Buying a home is not just a financial decision. It’s also a lifestyle decision.”
In fact, Gregory Schmidt with the New York Times reports that “Nearly three-quarters of Americans say owning a home is a higher measure of achievement than having a successful career, raising a family or earning a college degree,” according to a new Bankrate survey.
