BUYERS: Benefits of Owning
Your Own Home
There are many financial and
personal reasons why you should own
your own home rather than rent. The
obvious reasons include pride of ownership, building your own equity instead of
someone else’s, no more landlords, and of course the tax benefits you
reap. There are a multitude of other
reasons why owning your own home can make your life better.
One of the most overlooked reasons for owning a home is the freedom you get once you
have achieved this major goal in life.
Many first-time homebuyers find that once they have bought a house, many
other aspects of their personal life seem to fall in place. The security and piece of mind that come with
home ownership is a great accomplishment in many people’s lives, and once they
have overcome the obstacles, they find that other goals they had set out to
achieve become much easier to attain.
There is a great sense of belonging to the community once you own a home. You begin to feel more attached to the city
and its people. You will find yourself
more involved with community events - what is happening with the schools, roads
and shopping centers in your area. Some
new homeowners find themselves getting into local politics in order to create
better surroundings, which is something renters seldom do.
Home ownership is a strong anchor
for your life. You have something that represents a strong
commitment and a sense of stability.
Again, the aspect of freedom comes up - you won’t have to worry about a
landlord telling you it is time for you to move, your children won’t have to
worry about whether they will have to change schools, and you are blessed with
the ability to plan for the future.
By owning a home, you will find yourself in more control of your
immediate surroundings. You can change
things and decorate to your tastes, and not be limited by the standards of a
landlord. You do not have to seek
someone else’s approval if you decide to remodel or alter the landscaping. Your home truly is your castle.
If you have children, you will find that they feel more secure when coming
home to a house that is not owned by someone else. There are no worries that they will be
suddenly forced to change schools and reestablish their lives at the decision
of someone else. You can also get to
know your neighbors, and if they have children, lifelong friendships can be
formed because everyone knows that they will be around each other for years and
One final aspect that cannot be
overlooked is the pride that you feel
when you own your own home. You have
proven to yourself that you can achieve monumental goals and can give your
family the security it needs to move forward in life. Once you have built up equity in your first
home, you can leverage your equity to purchase a nicer home later.
Choose your agent wisely. Working with a full-time
professional real estate agent is a must. Ask questions of your agent. Find out how knowledgeable he or she is about
houses currently for sale in your price range and also of houses that have
recently sold. Can your agent recommend
a good lender that has the reputation of excellent customer service and low
rates? Does your agent ask questions of
you to have a full understanding of what you are looking for to help you get
the most home for the money?
