A survey by The Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University reveals that when a family is buying a home they consider the financial benefits of homeownership along with the social benefits. The survey mentions things like:

  • Paying rent does not make sense

  • Homeownership provides a good financial opportunity

  • Owning a home helps you building family wealth

  • Buying a home is investing in your retirement

  • Home equity gives you something to borrow against

So how did homeownership match up against other investments in 2015? Here is a chart that compares its return on investment against precious metals and the stock market last year:

2015 Return on Investment | Keeping Current Matters

Bottom Line

Not only did homeownership offer all its social benefits. It also was a great investment financially.
