Homeownership contributes to
higher educational achievement,
civic engagement, lower crime rates,
and better health and happiness.
Homeowners are more likely
to participate in local elections,
community causes and neighborhood
groups*. Plus, in 2019, a homeowner’s
average net worth was $254,500 vs.
$6,270 — 40 times that of a renter.**
