Americans – NJ -wants to be homeowners overall. According to a recent survey conducted by the 2011 National Housing Pulse Survey released by the National Association of Realtors in June, 72 percent of renters surveyed said owning a home is a top priority for their future. This is up from 63 percent in 2010. This poll represents Americans as a whole and didn’t necessarily break it down by state but overall Americans wants to be homeowners overall. I think it’s safe to say Atlantic County NJ can be included in those numbers. As I said in a previous post, https://atlanticcountyhomes.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/everyone-wants-a-home-after-all-it-is-the-american-dream/ We want to own our own home.
A few things have to happen in order for us to prosper and not just survive. America has to get back to work. It looks like we’re moving in that direction according to this article http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D9Q7FB583.htm
more jobs were created by American employers and gave a boost to U.S. stocks because of this fact. If we can keep moving in this direction at a quicker pace, we will be able to get america back to work.
I still say we need to change the way we buy homes in this new economy as I said in a previous post. If this economic downturn has taught us nothing else, it should have taught us that to continue to buy homes the same way in the future as we have in the past is insanity https://atlanticcountyhomes.wordpress.com/2011/07/22/should-all-future-home-buyers-consider-a-bigger-downpayment/
We can’t change what we don’t acknowledge. What do you think?
