Homeownership has many values from happiness, pride, and the feeling of belonging. All that said there is much more to owning a home than just the property itself, there is also much more of an emotional gain as well.
“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. President
You may feel happier with a sense of accomplishment
Habitat for Humanity says:
“Residential stability among homeowners is related to improved life satisfaction, . . . along with better physical and mental health.”
So there is much to gain aside from property. Aside from just having a sense of accomplishment, there is also better mental health, what more could you ask for?
“I will forever believe that buying a home is a great investment. Why? Because you can’t live in a stock certificate. You can’t live in a mutual fund.”
–Oprah Winfrey, media mogul
You can also engage in the neighborhood and community
Being a homeowner you may find yourself more active in the community and have more of a sense of belonging. With the excitement of inviting people to see your new home and getting to know your neighbors, you may find yourself sharing more in the community.
How exciting is that? A new community to be a part of!
Pro tip: It always helps to do some research before buying a home in the neighborhood you will be living in.
“Home is the nicest word there is.” –Laura Ingalls Wilder, author
You can customize your living space
With a place that’s truly your own, you have much more freedom to customize your living space.
Investopedia tells us:
“One often-cited benefit of homeownership is the knowledge that you own your little corner of the world. You can customize your house, remodel, paint, and decorate without the need to get permission from a landlord.”
So with so many benefits it almost seems crazy not to own a home in today's market.
