If this year proved anything, it is the importance of our home. Never before have Californians spent so much time living and working in it. All the good, the bad, and the ugly was revealed to us as we spent our lives at home these past couple of years.
While most homeowners in both Northern California and Southern California may have understood the financial benefits of homeownership, they now understand that a home also brings feelings of gratitude, security, pride, and comfort. While the world around us has changed almost overnight, our homes were redefined.
A study from Unison reports that:
- 91% of homeowners say they feel secure, stable, or successful owning a home.
- 64% of Americans say living through the pandemic has made their home more important to them than ever.
- 83% of homeowners say their home has kept them safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- 70% of homeowners feel more attached to their homes than before the pandemic.
As one CEO stated:
“Aside from the financial factors, there are several social benefits of homeownership and stable housing to consider. It has long been thought that buying a home contributes to a sense of accomplishment. Still, most individuals fail to realize that homeownership can benefit your mental health and the community around you.”
