Homeownership has been fairly synonymous with the idea of the American Dream and most people seem to really seek it out, but the truth is that it isn’t for everyone. Increasing the percentage of homeowners has been a goal of many politicians on both sides which shows how important it has become in the eyes of most. This isn’t just speculation either, the perfect example of Real Estate being a nonpartisan issue is shown in the “American Dream Down Payment Fund” that passed Congress in 2002. This is one of the very few bills that was unanimously voted for. There aren’t many topics that receive that kind of support, but that still doesn’t make homeownership for everyone.
