Homeownership: The American Dream

With the upcoming July 4th holiday, we take time to celebrate many things.  The Independence we have as Americans. The freedom we have to live in a free country, just as our children and their children will be able to.  We celebrate being Americans, and we celebrate the American Dream.

Part of what we know as “The American Dream” is homeownership.  Why? Well, as humans, we aspire to own our own place: to have someplace that we call home to root ourselves, express ourselves, and make our own.

Coldwell Banker as a company decided to look into the idea of homeownership, and the importance it has to Americans.  The findings from their survey are promising. Click through to the Coldwell Banker Realty Corp website to find out more!
