It is at once the badge of solid citizenship and the mark of a man who is striving to provide security for his family. Where else can you put your money, the fruits of your labor; how else can you provide so much of comfort, happiness and security for your famil/ and yourself, than in a home of your own? The house you buy today provides shelter and a good life for your family now and, as you pay for it, month by month, it helps you build a solid financial future for yourself. Of all the things you can buy, only a home retains its real worth-twenty, thirty, forty years from now it will still give you safe, secure shelter. All that this house actually costs you is the down payment, your monthly payments art> both rent and savings. Yes, your only real security is a home of your own! Stocks may depreciate, bonds may be defaulted, even savings accounts may be depleted, but so long as your home stands, it is shelter, it is security, it is stability, for you and your family. Fortunate, indeed, is the man who owns his home. It gives purpose to your family life. Come war or inflation, your savings invested in a home always yield their full measure of value in shelter, comfort and satisfaction. Should hard times come some day your savings might be dissipated while your home still stands as a haven. We learned during the depression of the thirties that it is neither wise, profitable nor necessary to take an honest man's home from him. We learned that there are measures that can be taken to help a man hold his home. This lesson our country will never forget. In this blessed America of ours, more people own their homes than in any land on earth. They are better homes, far, far better than the people of any other country may aspire to. And our homes are getting better all the time. Now that material and labor shortages are practically over, you may confidently expect to find this year the greatest home values ever seen in this country. Like everything else, houses cost more than they did ten years ago. Yet such is the progress of the building industry that more people can afford to own a home today than ever before. The home building industry of this country is constantly increasing the value of its product and reducing its costs so that the benefits of home ownership may be extended to more families than ever before. In thousands of communities in this country, you can now buy a home for no greater monthly cost than your weekly pay check. Remember, a home is more, much more, than bricks and mortar, nails and lumber. It is your sure investment in your family's happiness and welfare. In this insecure world a home of your own is the only sure bulwark you can erect against the forces that threaten the security of your family.
