For some of us we may just be purchasing our first home and for others we have been fortunate enough to own a home for several years. With that comes a sense of pride and a feeling that those who have not owned a home cannot comprehend. The feeling of walking into your newly purchased home is indescribable. There is just something about knowing it belongs to you and you get to make the decisions.
Owning a home gives a person a completely different perspective. You want to share it with others and create a place that others will feel comfortable and want to be. While renting an apartment you dont always have control of the environment, but you do in your own home. You have the flexibility to live how you want.
There are so many benefits that come with home ownership. We thought we would share a few.
- Balance and Quality of Life People who own homes tend to be healthier and more stable according to studies. They are able to control the environment and the types of products they use in their home. Overall they are happier and healthier.
- Financial For most people having a mortgage is more economical than it is to rent. You also get to deduct the interest on your taxes. So not only are you building equity, but you are getting a percentage back on your tax return. This can help pay for part of your mortgage.
