22 Feb Why We Build!
Here are just a few reasons why We Build!
- Homeownership can help break the cycle of poverty by allowing families to accumulate wealth through home equity; for low-income families, housing wealth often equals total wealth
- Higher rates of homeownership correspond with increased household and neighborhood stability and a reduction in violent crime in a neighborhood
- Compared to renters, children of homeowners are more likely to achieve higher levels of education and income, and to become homeowners themselves
