6 Reasons to Own a Home

April 2, 2018

In addition to the obvious benefits of owning a home, here are 6 key benefits of home ownership that should be a fact when deciding to make the one of the largest purchases of your life.

 

Happiness - The feeling of owning your own home is unmatched. You can fix it up, make it your own, get a dog, or plant a tree if you want. Doesn't that sound exciting!

 

Tax Savings - The government rewards homeowners by providing excellent tax benefits. The interest paid on your mortgage and other home-related expenses can generally be deducted from your income.

 

Appreciation - Home values have a well-documented history of going up over time. This increase becomes equity you can benefit from when you refinance or sell.

 

Equity - Renting has often been compared to paying 100% interest, but when you own a home and a mortgage is in place, a portion of your payment goes toward the principal balance on your loan. This builds your equity and acts as a savings account.

 

Roots - People who own rather than rent stay in their homes 4 times longer. This provides an opportunity to get to know your neighbors and connect with your local community.

 

Education - Research shows children of homeowners earn higher test scores and graduate at a higher percentage than those of renters.
