Should I Own A Home?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Evolution - 447 Boston Street, Suite #5, Topsfield, MA 92593-B

I'm in the middle of my 75th trip around the sun. During those trips, I have come to the conclusion that life seems to go in cycles. However, one thing seems to be a constant; People have a desire to own their own home. A place you are only accountable to yourself. A place where you can build equity. A place known and proven to be the beginning of wealth generation. There are probably as many reasons to own a home as there are homeowners.

Pictured below are some of the reasons to own your home.

What are yours?

Reasons To Own Your Home

Some Highlights

  • June is National Homeownership Month, and it’s a perfect time to think about all the benefits that come with owning your home.
  • Owning a home not only makes you feel proud and accomplished, but it’s also a big step toward having a secure and stable financial future.
  • Are you ready to enjoy all the amazing advantages that come with owning a home? Get in touch with a local real estate agent to start the process today.

Step one to owning your home is to contact your local Real Estate Professional who will help you navigate the Real Estate waters.

Doug, Yes, the ownership of a home can be a place where owners can establish equity, and with a multitude of distinct motivations driving them to homeownership.

Doug, there are so many reasons to BE a homeowner.   But if a person isn't ready to settle into a home for at least two years, maybe not.

All valid reasons for home ownership Doug Dawes . When I purchased my first home one of the reasons was because I wanted to play my music as loud as I wanted. Can't do that in an apartment. 😊

Good Afternoon Will Hamm LOL...I think you can provide an exhaustive list of why to own a home. There ate many out there that are questioning whether to own or not

Hello Mike Frazier 

I think just looking at the long-haul history of Real Estate ownership will prove that Real Estate ownership is one of the best avenues to wealth production

I guess there is longer timelines for some people than others when it comes to Real Estate ownership Joan Cox so I agree with your sentiments

BINGO! Bob "RealMan" Timm 

I like the way you think. When we bought our homes I was thinking that very thing, until the neighbors complained...lol Should have bought a little more secluded

I agree with the number of reasons matching the # of homeowners.  Guessing there are definitely a top 10 found in there with the sprinkling of all the different personalities on top.  mdm

Holidays in your own home. Kids growing up with neighborhood families around the childhood house. Memories are made in a location called home. Dorothy was right about no place like home. Start owning, stop renting. Great post Doug Dawes !

Took me a second to figure out who Dorothy was. I'm sitting here saying "no one named Dorothy replied????" Hahahahaha Then it hit me.

If I said even Toto missed his home, it might have registered instantly.
