For the past 10 years or so, people considered their home an investment because prices continued to climb and people were enjoying increased equity at a faster rate than ever before. Now, in the past couple of years all that has changed. But a home is still an investment. It’s an investment in family, neighborhoods, and community. Every day I see people experience extreme pride as they purchase their homes. It’ all about the American Dream and with all the negative news, it’s a breath of fresh air to know that pride of Home ownership is alive and well.
