A family’s most important investment

Home ownership helps build long-term wealth and net-worth. The money you spend builds personal equity and provides the opportunity to own a home free and clear by the time you retire.

Home ownership benefits Kentucky’s economy

71% of Kentuckians own homes. That translates to 1.2 million home owners. For every two homes sold, one job is created, and each purchase generates as much as $60,000 in economic activity.

Home ownership helps Kentucky communities

Home owners create safe, strong and stable neighborhoods for their families. Home owners are more likely to get involved in community groups and to vote. Children of homeowners do 23% better in school.

Kentucky voters support state programs that make home ownership more accessible and affordable

  • 70% Support state income tax deductions for the interest paid on home mortgages and property taxes.
  • 65% oppose the expansion of a sales tax to include select real estate and other professional services.
  • 62% say that eliminating the state mortgage interest deduction would have a negative impact on the housing market in Kentucky.

If tax reform detrimental to home ownership is enacted, the average home owner will pay $5,000 more in taxes.
