For many years, homeownership has been considered the foundation of the American dream. With the 4th of July right around the corner, patriotism is in the air, making it a great time to realize the American dream of becoming a homeowner. When you purchase a Richmond new home, you give yourself and your family a sense of stability, pride and comfort.
Each year, the month of June represents National Homeownership Month. This title encourages homeowners to reflect on the positive ways owning a home has bettered their lives and given them a community to call their own. Home builders, housing finance innovators, consumer education organizations and government officials have made efforts to ensure affordable homeownership opportunities to help families of all kinds achieve the American dream.
