The Civic Side of Homeownership
Are you involved in your community? As Realtors, Charlotte and Connie believe in the value of participating in events and organizations in your home town. The Ransom-McKenzie Team would like to take a moment to share with you this current data which relates to home ownership and civic involvement.
The National Association of Realtors recently released a study titled ‘Social Benefits of Homeownership and Stable Housing.’ The study confirmed a long-standing belief of most Americans:
Today, we want to cover the section of the report that quoted several studies concentrating on the impact homeownership has on the civic participation of family members. Here are some of the major findings on this issue revealed in the report:
People often talk about the financial benefits of homeownership. As we can see, there are also social benefits of owning your own home. The City of Riverside is a great place to get out and get involved. Charlotte & Connie are involved in a number of organizations and would be happy to help you find the right group to help you get involved. Give us a call today to discuss your civic involvement at 951-237-2044.
The Ransom-McKenzie Team sits on the Riverside Champions Council which is part of Riverside’s Seizing Our Destiny plan. This strategic plan creates ideas and actions to ensure that we continue to move forward towards “Riverside’s Prosperous Future”.
You can participate in Riverside’s plan as well by engaging with the City through their “Engage Riverside” website. There are links on this webpage to view and comment on City Council agenda items, and there are links to share ideas you have, or answer survey questions from the city. You can also review city budgets and check out city data from sources such as the city’s 311 hotline or crime reports. Being involved in what’s going on in town has never been easier.
We’re excited about where Riverside is going and look forward to sharing our city’s “wins” with you as we continue to experience positive designations in 2015. As part of the Council we sit on the “Location of Choice” pillar committee. The committee members talk about what currently makes Riverside a location of choice, but we also discuss what we would like to see in the future to make it even better.
Join in the conversation with us. What would you like to see in Riverside that would make it even more a “Location of Choice”?
