Hey Buyers: Don't Worry, Be Happy!

New, 24 comments

A Wharton professor's study found that renters may be happier than homeowners, and here's the kicker: the research is based on data collected before the market soured. From the prof's summary: "Overall, I found little evidence that homeowners are happier by any of the following definitions: life satisfaction, overall mood, overall feeling, general moment-to-moment emotions and affect at home. The average homeowner, however, consistently derives more pain (but no more joy) from a house and home." [Happier Blog]
