Is owning a home truly a good way to build wealth?
A study by the Federal Reserve formally answered this question. Some of the findings revealed in their report:
•The average American family has a net worth of $77,300
•Of that net worth, 61.4% ($47,500) of it is in home equity
•A homeowner’s net worth is over thirty times greater than that of a renter
•The average homeowner has a net worth of $174,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,100
Bottom Line: The Fed study found that homeownership is still a great way for a family to build wealth in America.
