Homeowner’s Net Worth is 36x Greater Than a Renter | Keeping Current Matters Over the last six years, homeownership has lost some of its allure as a financial investment. As homeowners suffered through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth. The Federal Reserve conducts a Survey of Consumer Finances, every three years, and just released their latest edition this past week. Some of the findings revealed in their report:
The average American family has a net worth of $81,200
Of that net worth, 61.4% ($49,856) of it is in home equity
A homeowner’s net worth is over 36 times greater than that of a renter
The average homeowner has a net worth of $194,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,400
Bottom Line

The Fed study found that homeownership is still a great way for a family to build wealth in America. ____________________________________________________________________
