    Is owning a home the American Dream?

    I think owning a home and being able to pay for that home and its upkeep would be the American Dream for me.

      Yes I agree and living there after the mortgage is paid off would be a dream indeed!

    But let's face it, we all need a roof over our heads

    they key to home ownership is re-thinking it's concept - Rather than looking for what we want, look for what we can afford, clean, safe and an economical roof over our heads. Something we can pay off in less than 15 years. As you can see from my experience, we cannot count on our income. We also need to think of a vehicle as safe, reliable transportation, that we can afford - hopefully buy without any payments or payoff in less than one year.

      I agree with you - a home should be a place that doesn't make you house poor and it should be a comfortable safe place.
