The American Dream is to own your own home, whether it is a log cabin in Oregon, a farmhouse in Iowa, or a penthouse in Manhattan. Our homes are where we eat, sleep, play, love, laugh, and cry. Where we read books, grow tomatoes, and play games. Where we can be alone or with our families. Where we can be ourselves. A home is often the biggest investment that a person will ever make and can be the most profitable one, too. Over the years, millions of ordinary hardworking people have prospered simply by owning the home they live in. They didn’t win a lottery or find gold in their backyard. They didn’t inherit a million dollars from a long-lost relative. They simply made monthly mortgage payments instead of rent payments. You can, too. The key is to think about your Home Dividend. Professor Karl Case, co-creator of the Case-Shiller Home Price Indices, said that our concept of the Home Dividend is "absolutely the correct way to think about it.” Your Home Dividend explains why this is so, and shows you how.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Houseonomics

"Think everything that could be said about housing had already been said? Think again. The Smiths offer a perspective on home buying that is fresh, sensible, and very much needed these days."
Alan Blinder, Princeton University

"The purchase of a home is the most significant investment decision confronting nearly all adults. Yet sound advice, untainted by the self-interest of real estate and mortgage brokers, is extremely scarce. In Houseconomics, the Smiths provide simple and understandable answers to the vexing questions surrounding home ownership, making it a valuable resource for anyone serious about their financial future."
Bryan White, Managing Director, BlackRock

"Houseonomics offers great insights about how to think about home ownership. Its approach is innovative, but the analysis is grounded in common sense. A useful primer for what is the most important investment most people make in their lives."
Paul Efron, Advisory Director, Goldman Sachs & Co.

"This book is a common sense response to those who question the value of homeownership. The Smiths validate the argument that homeownership is normally a key component of lifelong wealth building. They present a practical guide to basic financial analysis for those planning on owning a home or who currently own a home."
Doug Duncan, Chief Economist, Mortgage Bankers Association
