The story of New Homeowners Day is devoid of details. The holiday was created to bring joy to people who have finally purchased a home. The awareness of this fact should cheer you up and give you energy for a long time to come. A housewarming party is an event that can and should be celebrated! From now on, your life will never be the same.

A deeper look into U.S. history shows that buying a home used to be a very difficult task. In the first half of the 19th century, most people simply did not have the necessary finances to buy a house. In the 1890s, mortgages were in demand. This was made possible by the development of the U.S. banking system. It was designed for 5 years, and in the beginning people had to pay half of the cost of the house. Mortgages were a new banking practice that fully justified itself and still exist today.

Interesting facts

  • The transition to the modern state of households in the United States came in the 1950s, when more than half of Americans already owned their homes.
