Buying a Home: Still a Solid Financial Decision

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) in their 2015 National Housing Pulse Survey reports that 80 percent of Americans believe that buying a home is a good financial decision and 68 percent believe that now is a good time to make such a purchase. 71 percent believe that they will be able to sell their home for what they paid for it, a significant increase of 16 percent from 2013.

61 percent of renters replied that owning a home remains a priority.

As to why home ownership is important: building equity, desiring a safe and stable environment, and freedom to choose their neighborhood remain at the top.
