Real Estate as a Financial Investment

A survey by The Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University revealed when a family is buying a home, they think about the financial benefits of home ownership. The survey mentions things like:

  • Paying rent does not make financial sense
  • Home ownership provides a financial opportunity
  • Owning a home helps build family wealth
  • Buying a home is an investment for retirement
  • Home equity can be used by borrowing against it
