Owning a home – The Great American Dream

There is no better way to accumulate wealth than by owning your own home. But that is only one reason people want to partake in the great American dream of owning a home.


Security: There are many reasons that owning a home is the great American dream, but security is the most important. I just closed escrow on an apartment building. The majority of the tenants were long term residents paying extremely low rent. They had comfortably settled in. But after many years, the owner passed away and the heirs sold the building; rents were raised. Tenants have very little security, even with rent control tenants can be asked to move. Rents are sky high and moving is a lot of work.

Tax Benefits: Even with the new tax bill,  investing in real estate continues to provide a great tax write off.
