Harvard: 5 Financial Reasons to Buy a Home

by The KCM Crew
Eric Belsky is Managing Director of the Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University. He also currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Housing Research and Housing Policy Debate. This year he released a new paper on homeownership - The Dream Lives On: the Future of Homeownership in America. In his paper, Belsky reveals five financial reasons people should consider buying a home.

Here are the five reasons, each followed by an excerpt from the study:


1.) Housing is typically the one leveraged investment available. 

"Few households are interested in borrowing money to buy stocks and bonds and few lenders are willing to lend them the money. As a result, homeownership allows households to amplify any appreciation on the value of their homes by a leverage factor. Even a hefty 20 percent down payment results in a leverage factor of five so that every percentage point rise in the value of the home is a 5 percent return on their equity. With many buyers putting 10 percent or less down, their leverage factor is 10 or more."

14,027 Houses Sell Every Day in the U.S.!!

By The KCM Crew 


There are some homeowners that might consider waiting for the spring to sell their house thinking that no one buys a home during the winter months. What we should understand is that homes sell EVERY DAY. As a matter of fact, according to the latest Existing Homes Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors, on average14,027 homes sell daily in this country.

It is true that more houses sell in the spring than the winter in most markets.  However, it is also true that there will be more competition as many sellers wait to the spring to put their house on the market.


Thousands of homes sell each and every day in this country. Don't be afraid to put your house on the market this winter.

for every home in Minnesota to be tested.
In this guide, you will learn:
  • how you are exposed to radon
  • how simple it is to test for radon, and
