Here’s to Homeownership

June is National Homeownership Month

Did you know that Homeownership Month was established to provide effective resources and information needed to help all American families reach the important milestone of owning a home? We’ve been extra excited this month to help all the new Brock Built home buyers realize their dreams of becoming home owners. Now they can begin building their own home traditions for years to come and we’re glad they chose us as their home builder.

Homeownership Is Vital

As home builders in Atlanta, we wanted to take a few moments to remind everyone about the importance homeownership plays in the lives of our nation’s communities, families, and economic strength, by reviewing how it began and what it serves to recognize. The Federal celebration of Homeownership initially began as an annual week in June during the Clinton Presidency, then it became the entire month of June, under President G.W. Bush. Here are a few of our favorite parts from his 2002 proclamation announcing the event:

“Homeownership is an important part of the American Dream.”

“Homeownership encourages personal responsibility and the values necessary for strong families.” “Where homeownership flourishes, neighborhoods are more stable, residents are more civic-minded, schools are better, and crime rates decline.” “I encourage all Americans to learn more about financial management and to explore homeownership opportunities in their communities.” “By taking this important step, individuals and families help safeguard their financial futures and contribute to the strength of our Nation.”

Dreams Come True

According to a recent report from the US Census Bureau, 64% of the adult population presently owns their own piece of the American Dream, and now is a great time to discover for yourself the potential homeownership opportunities within your reach. We hope that by the end of this month or next, you are either enjoying your own new homeownership status or starting the process towards joining them. If you’re planning to buy a new home in the Atlanta market then you should consider what we have available to sell or pre-sell in one of our featured new home communities – Manor ParkOakhurst, West Highlands, or Vinings on the Chattahoochee. Talk to one of our agents or preferred lenders to learn more about what’s available to you.
