Increase Your Family’s Net Worth
As the economy continues to improve, more Americans are also seeing their personal financial situations improving. Many are finding they are able to start saving and look for new ways to build their net worth. Arguably the best way to dramatically increase your family’s net worth is by purchasing real estate.
A mortgage is a sort of “forced savings”, meaning that every time you make a payment on your mortgage you are contributing to your net worth. As opposed to renting, where every time you pay the rent you are contributing to your landlord’s net worth.
Every three years the Federal Reserve conducts a Survey of Consumer Finances in which they collect data across all economic and social groups. The latest survey, which includes data from 2010-2013, reports that a homeowner’s net worth is 36 times greater than that of a renter ($194,500 vs. $5,400).
In a recent Forbes article the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) Chief Economist predicts that in 2016 the net worth gap will widen even further to 45 times greater.

According to the nationwide Home Price Expectation Survey, here is how much value that $250,000 home will gain in the following years:
