A Place Called Home

The Social Dimensions of Homeownership

Kim R. Manturuk, Mark R. Lindblad, and Roberto G. Quercia

  • This is the first book to give a comprehensive portrait of the many and varied social benefits of homeownership.
  • Every chapter addresses the challenge of selection bias and every empirical chapter has been peer-reviewed. In research about homeownership, the decision of whether to rent or own is not controlled for.
  • The authors use the findings to try to extend the benefits traditionally associated with homeownership to renters.
  • How and why these benefits are transferred is discussed.
  • This dataset is the largest longitudinal demonstration project of low-income homeownership.
  • Includes the CAPS sample, which follows a group of homeowners before, during, and after the recession.
