June is National Homeownership Month, which means we’ve been celebrating all the good that comes with owning a home all month long! We hope you and your team take the time to reflect on all the great work you’ve done through an unpredictable, crazy season for your satisfied buyers and sellers this year.

Recognizing the importance of homeownership is nothing new; it goes as far back as the 1920s. In fact, it’s been a month-long celebration for the past twenty years. It’s also a time to recognize the effort that goes into every home journey and encourage future homebuyers to keep working toward the American Dream.  To all our agent and loan officer partners and friends, thank you for all that you do.

Here are a few recent stats on homeownership for you to know:

  • The homeownership rate in the United States is around 65 percent
  • According to a recent national survey, 71 percent of respondents said they would rather own a home than rent right now.
  • 73% of Americans reported higher self-esteem because they owned their home.
  • They also shared that owning a home made them feel independent (67%), satisfied (64%) and proud (61%)
  • Another survey shared that 75% of Americans cite owning a home as a more significant achievement than raising a family or having a successful career.
