June is National Homeownership Month! Homeownership is considered a huge part of the “American Dream,” and a goal many of our Savers are working toward, in spite of the current inflation, rising interest rates, and overall housing market.
Homeownership is considered a huge part of the “American Dream” and with Real Estate being one path to acquiring wealth, we all consider it at one point or another. But just because homeownership is one path to building wealth, it doesn’t mean it’s the right choice for EVERYONE financially.
In this Homeownership Partner Resource Packet, you’ll be able to support your community with tools, tips, and content that will assist them in their decision to purchase a home.
We encourage you to share the following social media content, blog posts, resources, and videos with your customers, members, constituents, and audience.
