Just to name a few:

  • Homeowners tend to get involved in the Community more.  More involvement in the Community makes it a better place to live which enhances everyone’s value.The benefits of homeownership


  • The Benefits of using your earnings to purchase an item and receive benefits from it versus paying rent, which is like just throwing money out the window, you receive nothing in return on a long term basis.


  • Homeowners tend to move less, making a more stable environment for the family, the Community, and the local economy.


  • You have the sense of a safe haven to return to whenever you like. A place you can destress, and feel warm and comfy and cozy.


  • You turn this house into a home as you apply your tastes, personality, imagination, and creativity to the house so that it becomes a reflection of you, a HOME.


  • Homeownership provides a strong sense of self.  You feel good about the ability to relax in your own yard on the hammockactually make this purchase and continue to improve the assets of your purchase.


  • The pleasure of being able to look around or walk around and have items that please you all around you, making you feel good - EMOTIONAL BENEFITS!


  • You can have a pet or two or three if you want too.  Many landlords do not allow pets. GET YOUR BEST FRIEND BACK!


  • You can have carpet or hardwood floors.  You can have one black wall and one orange wall and a green ceiling! FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION!


  • You’ll have the ability to let your dirty laundry lay on the floor or pile up if you want to and best of all, not have to go “DO” your laundry, but do it as you get to it while doing something else at the same time.     MORE FLEXIBILITY!


  • There are no bumping noises during the day or night to disturb you. PRIVACY!


  • Your favorite music can play as loud as you like it, as long as you like it.


  • Friends will have a place to stay when they are in town, with a room of their own most likely.  Friends may come to visit more often too. GREAT WEEKENDS!


  • You can take up a Hobby and have a place to pursue it. FULFILL YOUR DREAMS!


  • The benefits of Homeownership can mean staying in a bed and watching movies all day in your “jammies” or getting engrossed in a good book and just staying there.


  • Tax Benefits too.  Some of the expenses of homeownership are deductions you can use when filing your Taxes. SAVE MONEY ON TAXES


  • It is still the American Dream. The American Dream however has been modified, somewhat.  Homeowners have come to the realization that the Benefits and Pleasures of homeownership do not mean the “biggest house on the block” which can rob them of their financial stability but that homeownership means a “Reasonable foundation on which to build their future.”

Good points. The NAR campain talks positivly about some of these points as well.  The idea is catching on as the shortage of homes available is causing multiple offers on many homes.

Thank you Michael, I was using all the things that I remembered cherishing when we bought our first home so many years ago.  Hope the word spreads.  We could use some multiple bids around here. Thanks for stopping by.

Bobbie, TOO MANY GOOD REASONS Not To Buy! You hit almost all!

Posted by Ellen Caruso (Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty) over 6 years ago

Thanks Ellen. I'm open to adding more if you have a suggestion or two I'd appreciate it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Good Evening Bobbie,  You hit the nail on the head.  Beats renting and not having any benfits.

Posted by Will Hamm, "Where There's a Will, There's a Way!" (Hamm Homes) over 6 years ago

All so true, Bobbie.  People should not forget that they are buying a home not an investment.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) over 6 years ago

Thanks Will. I'm sure there another dozen of items that could be listed. As I think of them or get suggestions from other Realtors, I will add them.  Thanks for stopping by.

Bobbie, lets go with most renters wont allow you to pick your paint colors, so owning a home lets you be as colorful ar you want!

Posted by Ellen Caruso (Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty) over 6 years ago

Ellen, Thanks for the suggestion.
