In a poll taken by the Wilson Center Survey, it greatly has shown that Americans are still in love with the American Dream of owning their own home.
May 17, 2012 some 13,800 Realtors from 50 states, three territories, and Canada joined in rally near the Washington Monument, to show their goal to keep ownership central to the American Dream. Too many laws have tried to turn a corner on the ability for people to be able to make that American Dream come true.
In previous years we have had such a challenge of the results of illegal and harmful lending practices; thus causing a negative effect on the nation’s economy. We have met that challenge head-on as a country with positive aggression as we see how the nation has begun to heal itself.
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars put together a national survey released in May; voters did show their support for the American Dream. On a scale of 0 to 10; 62 percent of voters rated home ownership as a 10. A mean score of 8.6 was the total score from all the voters proving that owning a home is one of the top priorities over-all average among Americans. An amazing 91 percent of the voters listed “home ownership is part of the American Dream.”
What a great show of that stalwart American Stick-tuitive-ness – Go America!!
