ReBlog: Zombies, Vampires & FHA (real estate event)

1 comment  | 

My good friend and fellow real estate industry colleague just did a great little blog post about an upcoming event. The event is actually called Zombies, Vampires and FHA! Now you all know that I (along with my fellow Raz Room cohorts) did a little real estate Open House Zombie bombing this past year (here is the link if you missed the video). Ryan asked me if I could share a picture  or two for his video and blog post and of course I was honored. After learning a little about what the event includes I have to say it looks like one you will not want to miss. Do check out all of the detail about the event here!

Homeownership Helps Boost Children’s Educational Achievement

Comments Off  | 

Parents who own their own home may be helping to boost their children’s educational achievements and even reduce behavioral problems, according to a new nationwide study. The research showed that for children living in owned homes rather than rental units, math achievement scores are up to 9 percent higher, reading achievement is up to 7 percent higher and behavioral problems are 1 to 3 percent lower. These results held true after the researchers took into account a multitude of factors that may have influenced the findings, such as the fact that homeowners earn more and have higher levels of education than renters.

Buying A Home Benefits Children

Homeownership seems to benefit children because the environments in homes – including such things as safety, maintenance and the availability of educational materials – are on average better than those in rental units, the study suggests. In addition, the greater stability of homeowners is good for children’s development.

Donald Haurin, professor of economics at Ohio State University conducted the study with R. Jean Haurin, a retired research scientist at Ohio State, and Toby Parcel, a former sociology professor at Ohio State now at Purdue University. Their results appear in the current issue of the journal Real Estate Economics.

But the benefits for children came from more than just the improved environment, he said. The remainder of the benefits may come from the fact that homeowners tend to stay in one place longer than renters. This stability means that children stay in the same schools, and parents and children invest more time in developing positive relationships with their neighbors and the community. This investment in neighbor and community relationships may promote positive child outcomes.

The benefits of homeownership were also shown by the fact that children did better the longer they lived in owned homes. “It’s a cumulative effect,” he said.
