Owning your own four walls contributes to a marked feeling of happiness. This was established by scientists at the University of Hohenheim in a representative study.
Happiness through property
Around two thirds of the property owners surveyed said that they were happy with their property. And 36 percent of the rental tenants surveyed said that buying a property would make them happier. The researchers found that unusually happy moments included the purchase of the property, moving in and the payment of the last instalment.
