Homeownership Benefits Aren't Just Financial
Your home is more than just a roof over your head. Homeownership has long been a big part of the American Dream. A great majority of people in this country believe that owning their own home is either essential or important to achieving a feeling of success and prosperity. Of course, there are many financial benefits to homeownership. But having a permanent place to raise a family, to establish your own traditions, to host gatherings, and to plan for the future are also real benefits of owning.
Your life becomes more stable once you own a home. Unless you choose to move again, you shouldn’t be forced to do it. Moving is hard, aggravating, and definitely expensive. Many renters who find themselves moving from one rental to another know what a hassle it can be. With your own home, you can make long-term plans.
Owning means you can suit your own tastes, not follow rules set by a landlord. Whether you want to decorate in a modern style, rustic, or shabby chic, the choice is yours. You can tear out the hedge or plant a tree. Choose paint colors or wallpaper. Bring in any size pet that you like. Tear down walls or gut the kitchen for a complete remodel. Now you are the landlord, so you get to make the decisions.
You may sleep better and enjoy your leisure time more. You may even be a better cook when you become a homeowner. Well, those improvements may not exactly be the ones that you notice. But studies and reports found on the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) website make some rather wonderful claims about the benefits realized with homeownership.
These results may be due to a better sense of control and self-worth that homeowners enjoy versus renters. It’s human nature to yearn deeply to have our own turf. Although the results may be difficult to measure, the desire to own a home and to build a better future surely push people to want to want to achieve more. You and your family will have to discover the particular benefits that owning brings you. One fact is obvious: homeownership matters.

Doug worked with us to get our first home. He clearly understood our requirements and would give his impartial opinion after each viewing with his rationale. The detailing helped us in narrowing down our options. He is extremely patient and is highly responsive. His negotiation skills are par excellence which helped us get a good deal. He has a great team of people to work with right through the process. Overall highly positive experience and I would recommend Doug to any prospective buyer.
We have worked with Anna both as sellers and buyers on numerous occasions and would not use any other Realtor! Her knowledge of the neighborhoods and market as well as her unique marketing efforts make her a tremendous, well-rounded agent. Anna recently helped us navigate through a purchase of an investment property and her experience played an important part in making it a smooth transaction as well as a sound investment. Thank You Anna Shulkina!
Very professional, honest, knowledgeable. Jim was able to explain me a lot of details that entailed the business transaction. He was always patient and thoughtful when sharing his knowledge with me. I was always able to count on his best advice and professional judgment I am grateful for all the help Jim provided me in the process of getting my new home.
