Security: Homeownership provides a sense of security and stability. You have control over your living space and can make it your own without worrying about rent increases or lease expirations.

Investment: A home can be a good long-term investment, as property values tend to appreciate over time. When you own a home, you have an asset that can potentially increase in value and provide a return on your investment.

Pride of ownership: Owning a home gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment. You can make improvements and renovations to your home, making it your own and reflecting your personal style.

Tax benefits: Homeownership can provide certain tax benefits, such as deductions for mortgage interest and property taxes.

Predictable expenses: When you own a home, you have a better idea of what your monthly housing costs will be, as opposed to renting, where rent increases can occur at any time.

Greater privacy: When you own a home, you have greater privacy and control over your living space. You can also enjoy your outdoor space without worrying about disturbing neighbors.

Of course, purchasing a home is a major financial commitment and not the right choice for everyone. It's important to carefully consider your financial situation and lifestyle before making a decision.

Yes, these are great reasons to own a home.  Your third point: pride of ownership is one of the most important.  They should buy a home that they really like and don't mind paying on for 30 years!

The prices are very very decent compared to the coastal places around the country so yeah, I get why people would choose to live in the area.

Good morning Charles. The sense of belonging is stronger if you own the land beneath your feet. Enjoy your day.

Glad to see the post is public now Charles.  Good info.  I'd probably add some local information about schools in the area next time or some other reason that someone might want to live in Salina.  I'm going to have to look at a map to see where you are.  Town sounds familiar and we came through your state on the way back from Wyoming a few years back.

Tammy Lankford,

Well I looked at a Map and see why it sounds familiar.  We met one of my husband's high school friends in Salina after driving north from Oklahoma City to I-70 because she lives about an hour north of Salina so she drove down and met us for lunch there when we were headed west to Colorado.
