Many believed that when the housing market crashed, so too would the desire of American’s to own a home again. Many reports have shown that, especially among younger generations, the American Dream of homeownership is still very much alive. Julián Castro, Secretary for HUD,recentlysummed up what it means to own a home in a speech at the National Press Club.
"Homeownership is still the cornerstone of the American Dream — a fact you can see in the lives of everyday folks.It’s a source of pride. It’s a source of wealth, providing both a nest and a nest egg. And it strengthens communities and fuels growth in the overall economy."
Castro appropriately named his speech,“2015: A Year of Housing Opportunity”, a theme that rang true throughout.
“Opportunity is not an abstract concept - it's a path to a more prosperous life, and housing often serves as its foundation. T.S. Elliot once said that "home is where one starts from."“A home is often a primary source of wealth in a family… Having a home is generational way to pass that wealth on. We want people responsible enough to own a home to have that opportunity.”
“Over the years-through decades of economic downturns and wars-the American people have always held on to this Dream, and always will.”
As the economy continues to improve, more and more Americans will qualify for homeownership, allowing more families to obtain the American Dream.

"Kim Guest is an amazing agent. She was patient with me while purchasing my home after my husband passed away. She had to show me several homes and at that time I was very hard to please, showing me homes in evenings and weekends. Kim is a very passionate and knowledgeable agent. She worked very hard on getting me the home I wanted and seen me through my closing. Since I want to sell my home now Kim is the agent I turned to for that. She is my RE agent for life.
