Homeownership doesn't just change the homeowners--over two-thirds of respondents said their relationships with family and friends have evolved since owning a home. Home ownership was said to help the owners entertain more, give families a sense of pride, and even bring their whole family under one roof.
Along with impacting relationships, homeownership was found to improve the lifestyles of many people. Over 75% of respondents claimed homeownership made them a better person and reported that they developed new hobbies and interests once they bought a home. Among the new hobbies were landscaping, gardening, culinary skills, interior design, and remodeling.
