Nearly one third of homeowners, 72 percent, say they are satisfied with their purchase, according to HomeGain's 2012 Home Ownership Satisfaction Survey. The survey included responses from over 1,400 homeowners from across the United States.
Overall, the most popular reason sited for satisfaction was pride about homeownership. Many of those who reported themselves as unsatisfied listed depreciation in value as the source. Homeowners faced with this situation may wish to look at a home mortgage comparison and determine what refinancing options may be available to them.
“The HomeGain 2012 National Home Ownership satisfaction survey shows in spite of declines in the values of homes nationwide, satisfaction among homeowners remains high at 72 percent,” said Louis Cammarosano, general manager of HomeGain.
Homeowners in the Northeast were the most satisfied at 77 percent, followed by Southeast owners at 73 percent, west at 71 percent and the Midwest at 68 percent. Homeowners between the ages of 55 and 65 were the most satisfied at 76 percent. Homeowners between 18 and 25 had the lowest satisfaction rate at 45 percent.
Consumers seeking a new home should consider their financial stability and residential financing options to increase their potential home satisfaction
