Is Homeownership a Good Investment?
Americans’ Powerful Belief in Homeownership as an Investment
I’m often asked if homeownership is a good investment compared to other options such as stocks or bonds. While the answer depends on the person, according to the latest survey by the Federal Reserve Bank (The Fed), 65% of Americans believe homeownership is a good investment.

Since 2014, the percentage of Americans who see homeownership as a good investment has increased by over nine percent.
The Fed’s survey also showed that when the results are broken down by age, education, income, or region of the country, more than 55% of Americans in each category see homeownership as a good investment.
This coincides with a recent Gallup survey of Americans which revealed that real estate was their number one choice for the best long-term investment when compared to stocks, savings accounts or gold.
So, Americans’ belief in residential real estate as a good financial investment continues to grow as the housing market returns to normalcy.
