What does Home Ownership in Lakewood mean to you.

What does Home Ownership in Lakewood mean to you.

Over the last few years, home ownership has lost some of its appeal as a financial investment. As homeowners suffered through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth. A study by the Federal Reserve formally answered this question.

Some of the findings revealed in their report:

  • The average American family has a net worth of $77,300
  • Of that net worth, 61.4% ($47,500) of it is in home equity
  • A homeowner’s net worth is over thirty times greater than that of a renter
  • The average homeowner has a net worth of $174,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,100

Bottom Line

The Fed study found that home ownership is still a great way for a family to build wealth in America. When I visit families in Lakewood or Long Beach that are thinking about selling and retiring, the homeowners that have been paying off their home for the last 30 years have a substantial amount of wealth. We can take a third of this and purchase a home in an over 55 community for all cash and still have the other two thirds left for them to have a great nest egg. Older people that have no home are usually spending their social security on the rent. Very little is left for them to enjoy. Don't wait until it is to late to make a difference in your life wealth. Call me today to get ahead!. If you are curious what is on the market in Long Beach and Lakewood go to my website at Lakewood was just voted as one of the top ten boring cities in California (probably because we do not have enough bars!) If you would like more information about how wonderful living in a boring city like Lakewood ... let me know, I have the inside scoop.
