It’s safe to say homeownership has lost some of its enticement as a financial investment over the past six years. As homeowners fought through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth. According to a study by the Federal Reserve formally answered this question. Call Craig Adelman today at 303.809.8979.

  • 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

Needless to say, the Fed study found that homeownership is still a great way for a family to build wealth in America. Call Craig Adelman today at 303.809.8979.
