Few things are as rewarding as homeownership, but recent studies show it’s on the decline among one demographic.

Between 1980 and 2000, the share of late-20-somethings owning homes declined from 43 percent to 38 percent. The share of early-30-something home owners slipped from 61 percent to 55 percent during that same period. After the boom and bust were over, both rates kept falling. The rate of young people getting their first mortgage between 2009 and 2011 was chopped in half from 10 years earlier, according to a study from the Federal Reserve.

The point is, a growing number of younger people aren’t buying homes and owning a home is one of the most rewarding investments you’ll ever make. Not to mention the fact that there’s nothing better than coming home to your own home at the end of the day instead of an apartment.

If you’re living in the Santa Clarita area and are in search of a home, you need to call Laura Smith of Laura Smith Homes. Let’s face it, with more than 6 million new and existing homes sold each year in the United States, the options can be staggering! As your HomeSmart agent, she will help you narrow down the choices and find the property that best suits your needs.

A home is more than a collection of rooms and walls. A home is where you live, raise your family, entertain and relax. And once that family is grown up, your needs may be entirely different. Instead of looking for a home near a park, you may be looking for a home near a golf course or tennis courts.

Since so much of your life is spent in your home, choosing the right one is a big decision. It is important to consider your priorities and the list of features you are looking for in a home. Laura will help you define your search parameters and target the ideal properties for you to consider.
