June is National Homeownership Month

Statistics show that more Americans than ever are homeowners. The "First-quarter numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau show that America's homeownership rate is at an all-time high of 68.6 percent." (source: RisMedia article)

The 2004 Housing Pulse Survey shows that Americans are concerned about housing. According to the National Association of Realtors:
"Families rank the cost and availability of health insurance, job security and housing costs and availability (in that order) as their three greatest concerns. Two-thirds of the respondents said they were concerned about the cost of housing in their communities. Seven out of ten want government to make affordable housing a higher priority, and two-thirds include affordable housing opportunities as a factor in their decisions about voting for a candidate."
