Homeownership Aspirations: The Enduring & Evolving American Dream

  • Almost all respondents (94 percent) said that if money were no object, they would own their home.

  • While detached single-family homes are idealized among all age groups, young adults are slightly more likely to indicate a different preference.

  • A majority of Americans (56 percent) would prefer to live in the suburbs – even among stereotypically city-loving young adults under age 35, 52 percent of whom said their ideal home is in the suburbs.

The idyllic, picket-fenced, detached, single-family home in the suburbs remains a mainstream standard of what homeownership should look like. But around the edges, the image of the ideal American home is beginning to evolve, if only slightly. Especially for younger Americans.

A decade after the 2008 housing crash and subsequent financial crisis, the draw of homeownership remains powerful for Americans of all ages, according to the most recent Zillow Housing Aspirations Report.

Roughly two-thirds (64 percent) of Americans in 20 metros agreed that owning a home is a “key to a higher social status” and “necessary to live The American Dream.” Even more (70 percent) agreed that homeownership “increases your standing in the local community.”
