Should You Buy a House?


In this lesson, students consider the financial responsibilities and emotional investments of buying a house. Although the housing market has taken a hit since 2008, owning a house is still a big part of the American dream. In this lesson, the students explore these ideas and think about buying a house by merging the rational decision-making model and the consumer decision-making model. Since a house is not just a purchase but a lifestyle change, students can think about major purchases from this perspective.
