As we draw National Homeownership Month to a close we thought it would be nice to talk about how owning a home impacts you. A home is more than just a space you occupy - it gives you a place to BE. So, if you’re thinking about buying a home this year but aren’t sure, here are some benefits to owning your own place!
Because your new home is 100% yours in ways that previous accommodations through renting or leasing were not, it allows you the freedom to express yourself! We’re not telling you green shag carpet goes with those magenta drapes, but no one is telling you not to make your home look how you want it to!
With rising rent rates across the country many people face uncertain times. Owning your home is one way to protect yourself against large market fluctuations as well as economic trends. A home of your own provides a solace during difficult times.

Owning a home in a town, city, or village makes your part of the local flavor! You might be surprised to find yourself taking an interest in civic activities and finding new opportunities to enhance your joy of living just by embracing your new place.
Building Your Wealth
It’s a fact, owning real estate is still one of the best ways to grow long term wealth. Wealth that you can use to better your life and even pass on to future generations. More than just money in the bank through equity, owning a home increases your overall net worth more than 40 times that of a renter.
