We talk a lot about the financial benefits of homeownership because there are just so many of them. But owning a home has way more benefits than just financial.
1. You can have pets! Gone are the days of paying ridiculous pet rent or sneaking your dog out the door when the landlord comes to visit. When you own your house, you make the rules. And if you want to have the most pet-friendly property around, you can!
2. You have the freedom to express your own style. There’s nothing worse than coming up with the perfect design for a room, only to remember that you’re renting and your landlord won’t let you do anything with the bare white walls, lest your deposit disappear. Owning your own house means you can paint, wallpaper, replace fixtures, and renovate as much as you want. Only your own ideas are the limit.
3. You’ll have more privacy and security. Not that it isn’t great getting woken up by your upstairs neighbor at 4 am because they just have to move the furniture, but… it could be better, right? There’s something about knowing you’re safe and secure in your home and have privacy that makes it so much easier to sleep at night.
4. You’ll feel settled in the community. When you buy a home, you become a part of the neighborhood fabric. You’ll get to know your neighbors, attend neighborhood events, and start to build those relationships that can really make life enjoyable. And, it’s always nice to know you can pop over to someone’s house for a cup of sugar.
I could go on and on about the benefits of becoming a homeowner, but you get the picture. Basically, owning a home has the potential to improve so many facets of your life—from your finances to your home life to your creativity to your relationships.
