Net Worth: A Homeowner’s is 36x Greater Than A Renter!
Over the last six years, homeownership has lost some of its allure as a financial investment. As homeowners suffered through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth.
Every three years the Federal Reserve conducts a Survey of Consumer Finances in which they collect data across all economic and social groups.
Some of the findings revealed in their report:
- The average American family has a net worth of $81,200
- Of that net worth, 61.4% ($49,856) of it is in home equity
- A homeowner’s net worth is over 36 times greater than that of a renter
- The average homeowner has a net worth of $194,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,400
There are many reasons why owning a home makes sense, the Fed study shows that owning is still a great way for families to build wealth in America.
