    Real Estate Shines as an Investment in 2015 | Simplifying The Market

    A survey by The Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University reveals that when a family is buying a home they consider the financial benefits of homeownership along with the social benefits. The survey mentions things like:

    • Homeownership provides a good financial opportunity
    • Owning a home helps you building family wealth
    • Buying a home is investing in your retirement
    • Home equity gives you something to borrow against
