Social benefits of homeownership

How being a home owner benefits your life

Owning a home is more than just making a financial investment — it’s also about investing in your family’s social benefits. The infographic below from CAR.org sums it up well; being a homeowner provides:

  • Educational success — statistically children of homeowners have higher achievement in reading and math, fewer behavior problems, and are more likely to stay in school
  • Community involvement — you’re more likely to be civically involved, know your fellow neighbors, and volunteer your time
  • Health benefits — homeowners overall have a higher quality of life, healthier self-esteem, and feel more in control of their lives
