Happiness is a Home

Turns out that, as realtors have suspected for some time, home ownership makes people happier and healthier. 

 

This is according to data from the "OECD Better Life Index", which tracks the quality of life worldwide.  On their “well-being index”, 75% of all states ranked housing as the single most important contributor to happiness.

 

To be sure, the secret to true happiness is not as simple as owning a home!  Family, community, career, friends, and many, many other things contribute to happiness and health.  But that the sense of accomplishment, of pride, of having a place you can call yours does help make a big difference in how you feel about things.  Which is one reason Yvonne loves working with both Buyers and Sellers - in the end helping everyone be in a position to move into that perfect place to call home.

 

If you are a data person you can go the OECD’s site and see it for yourself.  And you can read a National Association of Realtors article on this here.
