There are a few parts of American culture that people believe define this country. One element is the dream of homeownership. There is a strong belief that people need a place to call home. Therefore, since the dawn of this country, the government has tried to incentivize people to purchase a home. At the same time, there are some people who are looking at the younger generation, wondering if this American Dream is starting to change. Is homeownership still a part of the American Dream?Americans Still Believe In The Idea Of HomeownershipHard work and owning a home appear to be inseparable. There is still a belief that as long as people work hard and save money, they can fulfill the American Dream by buying a home. Real estate professionals regularly take surveys that show that people st...

4 Reasons Why the End of Forbearance Will Not Lead to a Wave of Foreclosures With forbearance plans about to come to an end, many are concerned the housing market will experience a wave of foreclosures like what happened after the housing bubble 15 years ago. Here are four reasons why that won’t happen. 1. There are fewer homeowners in trouble this time After the last housing crash, about 9.3 million households lost their home to a foreclosure, short sale, or because they simply gave it back to the bank. As stay-at-home orders were issued early last year, the overwhelming fear was the pandemic would decimate the housing industry in a similar way. Many experts projected 30% of all mortgage holders would enter the forbearance program. Only 8.5% actually did, and that number is now down to...

Different people want different things in their homes—and that includes people of different ages. The perfect home style for a first-time Gen Z home buyer might not speak to a Baby Boomer looking to buy a home to retire in (and vice versa).So what, exactly, are the most popular home style choices for each generation?A recent survey from Buildhome asked potential buyers across four generations—Gen Z, Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers—what type of home style they prefer between five different interior and exterior styles. For exterior options, respondents were able to choose from Modern Farmhouse, Cottage, Craftsman, Victorian, and Contemporary or Industrial Modern. For interior options, the options were Rustic Modern, Traditional, Modern, Zen, and Japandi (a style that combines...

Whether you're looking at a lovely shabby chic farmhouse or a remote cabin in the woods, how do you know what actually makes something rustic? There are a few key elements you need to make your home fit the bill, but once you have it down it's pretty easy to spot. To have a rustic home, you don't need to live in a log cabin—you just need to put ...

The best protections from the outside world is a home you love and trust. Your home or actually where you live should be your favorite place.  The place you go in times of troubles  I do think that most Americans do get rather attached to their homes.  I have been there. It is still four walls and a roof and your entire world should not be wrapped up in this structure.  If the house does not suit your needs you need to make that decision and improve that piece of your life.    Message me if you need help finding your place.    #thehelpfulagent #home #houseexpert #house #listreports #homeowners #homeowner #realestate #realtor #realestateagent #ashelterfromthestorm #happyhome

 Laughter is like a windshield wiper, it doesn't stop the rain but allows us to keep going.The main function of the little toe on your foot is to make sure that all the furniture in the house is in place.Just because you're not dead doesn't mean you're alive. In an ideal world, weight would be like virginity -- once you lose it, it's gone forever.I started out with nothing and I still have most of it.This 'killing them with kindness' is taking longer than I expected.If women are always right, why do they always pick the wrong men???They say marriages are made in Heaven, but so are thunder and lightning. - Clint EastwoodThe worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades.   Stay Happy And Safe My Friends
