Source: RISMEDIA, February 12, 2011—Trulia.com, a top site for home buyers, sellers and renters, released the results of its biannual American Dream survey, which has tracked American attitudes towards homeownership since 2009.
"American Dream Still Lives: Seventy percent of Americans still view homeownership as being part of their American Dream. In fact, more than three out of four homeowners (78%) say their homes are the best investment they ever made. Conversely, only 20% feel trapped in their "underwater" homes while 14% said they would walk away from their homes in a heartbeat if they could."
I can't even begin to understand why anyone would doubt the American Dream of home ownership. Greg Rand, CEO of Own America said it best, "Real estate isn't the product, America is the product"... "We have more pure property rights than any other country on the planet"...
People from all over the world want to live here; they fight and even lose their lives to get here? And don't forget the basic human need for shelter. These are two main drivers as to why real estate is still a good investment. Long term, real estate always performs and appreciates and this has been proven over and over historically. Home ownership is still the American Dream because America is in demand.
Whether you rent or buy, you pay for the home you occupy.
The North Georgia real estate market is a very opportunisitc market for buyers and sellers.
