We frequently talk about why it makes sense to buy a home financially, but more often the emotional reasons are the more powerful or compelling ones. When i bought my first home it was emotional reason for me and my wife. As we were expecting our second child and my parents just moved in with us.
No matter what shape or size your home is, the feeling of a home can mean different things to different people. Whether it’s a patio or recreational room, the emotional reasons are typically more important to us than the financial ones when we choose to buy our own home.
1. Owning your home offers stability to start and raise a family
From the best neighborhoods to the best school districts, even those without children at the time of purchase may have this in the back of their minds as a major reason for choosing the location of the home that they purchase.
This was the reason when i bought my first home and i`m glad we choose a great neighborhood.
2. There’s no place like home
Your own home is a comfortable place that allows you to unwind after a long day! Enjoy the sun on patio with nice cold beer.
3. You have more space for you and your family
Whether your family is expanding, an older family member is moving in, or you need to have a large backyard for your kids and pets, you can take all this into consideration when buying your dream home!
My family all of the sudden was about to grew from three to six when i bought my first house.
4. You have control over renovations, updates, and style
