Do you want to know the secret to overcoming your financial stress? Apparently, you have to be a homeowner. According to a study done by Gallup.com, between renters and homeowners, the former admits to feeling a higher level of stress in their finances. In a survey conducted on 5,000 respondents over a course of more than 3 years (2013 to 2016), it is revealed that 49% of renters worry about their home payments. This is 24 points more than the 25% of homeowners who have admitted being in the same predicament. This is an indication that people who own homes are more likely to be in a more stable financial situation. After all, if you are unemployed or relying on an irregular salary, you would not think about buying a house. It is too big of a financial decision. And no mortgage lender will approve your loan if they see that you are not in a strong financial position. Homeowners are more confident with their personal financesand are less likely to feel stressed about their money. Although they are paying for their house (since most homes are bought through a mortgage), they are prepared to take on that financial burden. The pressure is not as bad because they are more motivated to meet payments. They are paying for something that they own. This makes the sacrifices more bearable and they do not add to any stress that you feel towards your finances.
