For example the construction of a single home creates the equivalent of 3.3 jobs for a full year. Because five out of six jobs created in residential construction take place away from the building site, we consider the residential construction sector to be an invisible giant when it comes to job creation.

Individuals and families benefit from the financial and social security that comes from home ownership.
