Real Estate Tips: How Kids Benefit From Homeownership
Although they’re not the ones buying a home, or making financial decisions, children can be a huge factor in determining whether to rent, or buy.
It turns out that children actually can benefit greatly from the decision to buy a home
So what are the benefits to children from homeownership?
Better Grades in School: Being in a stable long-term environment can positively impact children’s ability to stay focused in school. With no worries of switching schools, or moving, in their near future their minds have the mental freedom to stay focused on their education and schoolwork.
Better Behavior: The sense of security that is created for children through homeownership helps stop children from developing some behavioral issues that may stem from an inconsistent, possibly more stressful, living environment.
Safer Community: Studies have shown that homeownership leads to a lower crime rate and a safer environment that children can run around in and explore with abandon.
