Why Home Ownership Should be Every Young Person’s Goal

by | Feb 14, 2024 | Member Spotlights | 0 comments

What if there was one simple way to improve your own life trajectory, as well as that of your family for more than one generation? What if this one simple fix could improve your family’s safety, your children’s behavior, your own sense of freedom, and even your neighborhood’s beauty along with your trust in those neighbors? What if there was a way to eventually die with 40x the assets as if you’d been part of the opposite condition?

What if there was one simple upgrade many of us could make that could accomplish these ends? Would we do it? Would we push more young adults toward it? Would we do more to help them in that pursuit?

This upgrade does exist, and today’s presenter, Jeremy Shaffer of Premier Bank gave an upbeat and compelling pitch on it—sharing the aforementioned benefits. It’s “simple” to state, but not as easy to achieve:

It’s HOME OWNERSHIP.

Now—of course home ownership is great for those who enjoy it. Jumping rates and prices reinforce this point while also paradoxically putting it even further out of reach. For many millennials and those in gen Z, owning doesn’t even feel like a possibility in the future.

Thankfully though, this hopelessness doesn’t have to be as harsh a reality as those on the outside (or living too close to any coastal city) believe. Jeremy was able to share that he’s helped numerous young people get into homes when they didn’t believe they’d yet be qualified to buy. For many who don’t, the path to qualify isn’t so daunting either with a little bit of focused guidance.

Can you reap the benefits mentioned at the top of this post for your family, by soon getting into your own home? It all starts with a conversation. Connect with Jeremy and schedule something today.
