Homeownership - An ActiveRain Challenge - June 2019

 

June is National Homeownership Month! The ActiveRain challenge this month is, of course, centered around the theme of the month.

  • Now is a great time to reflect on the many benefits of homeownership 
  • Homeownership is a good way to build up wealth that can be passed along to your family as well.
  • Whether you rent or own, you are paying a mortgage. Yours when you own - your landlord’s when you rent.

Celebrate Homeownership Month

 

What does homeownership mean to YOU? The challenge this month is to share just that - easy peasy! Whether you’re a real estate agent, a real estate attorney, stager, inspector or any professional on this forum, homeownership is important to you. Why?

 

In 300 or more words, share your reason or list of reasons that homeownership is worth celebrating - not only during the month of June but, year-round!

 

The bottom line...

 

 

  • Post must be at least 300 words.
  • Post must include at least 1 graphic
  • Entry MUST be written between June 2, 2019 and June 30, 2019 (midnight PST)
  • Points - 1,500 (one entry per member)
  • Link MUST be submitted in the comment section below.

You know, I was discussing giving my oldest my car when I finally make a decision on a new car. My husband piped up and said that we had seen a second home on the lake that we had our eye on so, the car purchase would be on hold for awhile.

Our son said, "Oh, that's okay! I'd much rather you buy that house at the lake so we can enjoy it sometimes too!" 

Your post reminded me of this conversation - yes, even those second homes are a source of opportunity to build more memories with our families and friends. I love that!

Thanks for sharing in this month's challenge, Peter Mohylsky, SoWal Is HOME.

Thank you so much for participating and sharing your story and photos of your beautiful home, Rebecca. It's one of those ah-ha moments when we realize it's time to do something that others have been preaching to us to do, isn't it?!! I know you're glad you did!

Hi Bob Crane! Thank you so much for sharing your story - I enjoyed every word of it! That was quite a deal that you and your wife were able to secure - and it changed your life, didn't it?

Loved your story, even thought I already knew it, Wayne Martin! And it also gives me peace to know that you're living in the same city my son (my baby!) is now living too! 

Thanks again for sharing in this month's challenge!
