[:en]New York Times: Homeownership is Best Way To Build Wealth | Simplifying The Market

The New York Times recently published an editorial entitled, Homeownership and Wealth Creation.” The housing market has made a strong recovery, not only in sales and prices, but also in the confidence of consumers and experts as an investment.

The article explains:

“Homeownership long has been central to Americans’ ability to amass wealth; even with the substantial decline in wealth after the housing bust, the net worth of homeowners over time has significantly outpaced that of renters, who tend as a group to accumulate little if any wealth.”

Many of the points that were made in the article are on track with the research that the Federal Reserve has also conducted in their Survey of Consumer Finances.

The study found that the average net worth of a homeowner ($194,500) is 36x greater than that of a renter ($5,400).

One reason for this large discrepancy in net worth is the concept of ‘forced savings’ created by having a mortgage payment and was explained by the Times:

“Homeownership requires potential buyers to save for a down payment, and forces them to continue to save by paying down a portion of the mortgage principal each month.”

“Even in instances where renters have excess cash, saving a substantial amount is difficult without a near-term goal, like a down payment. It is also difficult to systematically invest each month in stocks, bonds or other assets without being compelled to do so.”

Bottom Line

“As a means to building wealth, there is no practical substitute for homeownership.” If you are a renter who is considering making a purchase, sit with a local real estate professional who can explain the benefits of signing a contract to purchase over renewing your lease![:es]New York Times: Homeownership is Best Way To Build Wealth | Keeping Current Matters

The New York Times publicó recientemente un editorial titulado “Homeownership and Wealth Creation.” (Ser propietario de casa y la creación de riqueza) el mercado de la vivienda tuvo una recuperación fuerte, no solo en las ventas y los precios, pero también en la confianza de los consumidores y los expertos como una inversión.

El artículo explico:

“Ser propietario de casa por largo tiempo ha sido el centro de la capacidad de los estadounidenses para acumular riqueza; incluso con la disminución considerable en el patrimonio después de la burbuja de la vivienda, el patrimonio neto de los propietarios de casa con el tiempo significativamente supero el de los inquilinos, que tienden como grupo a acumular poca si alguna riqueza”.

Muchos de los puntos que se hicieron en el artículo están de acuerdo con la investigación que la Reserva Federal también ha llevado a cabo en su “Survey of Consumer Finances” (encuesta de las finanzas del consumidor).

El estudio encontró que el promedio del patrimonio neto de los propietarios de casa ($194,500) es 36 veces más grande que el de los inquilinos ($5,400).

Una razón por esta gran discrepancia en el patrimonio neto es el concepto de “ahorro forzado” creado al tener un pago de hipoteca y fue explicado por el Times:

“Ser propietario de casa requiere que compradores potenciales ahorren para una cuota inicial y los obliga a seguir ahorrando al pagar una porción del principal de la hipoteca cada mes”.

“Incluso en casos donde los inquilinos tienen exceso de efectivo, ahorrando una cantidad sustancial es difícil sin una meta a corto plazo, como la cuota inicial. También es difícil invertir sistemáticamente cada mes en acciones, bonos y otros activos sin ser obligados a hacerlo”.

En conclusión

“Como un medio para crear riqueza, no hay sustituto practico para ser propietario de casa”. Si usted es un inquilino que está considerando el hacer una compra, siéntese con un profesional en bienes raíces local que pueda explicarle los beneficios de firmar un contrato para comprar en vez de renovar su contrato de alquiler.[:]
