Politics And Home Ownership

This is not a political post!

Finally, the issue of home ownership has become a platform talking point in this year’s presidential debate. Yesterday, one of the candidates running for President spoke out about the importance of home ownership in America.

Hillary Clinton detailed a new economic agenda yesterday. In announcing her new agenda, she remarked:

“Home ownership is about more than just owning a home. It is about putting roots down in a community with better schools, safer streets and good jobs. And it is about building wealth, as homeowners build equity in their home one mortgage payment at a time…We must make sure that everyone has a fair shot at home ownership.”

This post isn’t political!

It doesn’t matter that it was Clinton who said it first. It doesn’t matter that she is a Democrat. What matters is that EVERY candidate for our country’s highest office realizes the important role home ownership plays in the development of our nation. The fact that home ownership was finally brought to the forefront of the debate is great news – no matter which way you lean politically.
