As of 2002, then President George W. Bush proclaimed the entire month of June National Home Ownership Month! For the past 12 years, we have celebrated every June by enjoying the national pastime of owning a piece of property in the United States. As we reflect on the upcoming months in real estate, here is a small excerpt from that speech that President Bush gave that day:
“Homeownership is an important part of the American Dream…A home provides shelter and a safe place where families can prosper and children can thrive. For many Americans, their home is an important financial investment, and it can be a source of great personal pride and an important part of community stability.”
“Homeownership encourages personal responsibility and the values necessary for strong families. Where homeownership flourishes, neighborhoods are more stable, residents are more civic-minded, schools are better, and crime rates decline.”
“During National Homeownership Month, I encourage all Americans to learn more about financial management and to explore homeownership opportunities in their communities. By taking this important step, individuals and families help safeguard their financial futures and contribute to the strength of our Nation.”
With June underway, there is no better time than now to celebrate the American dream by owning your own The Cliffs real estate. Having that pride of ownership is what we live for, as well as the financial stability that the piece of property can bring for you in the years to come. Owning your own home is still on everyone’s must have list as they grow older and with the economy picking back up, now is definitely the time to pursue those options!
