Homeownership: My favorite things

November 15, 2011

Carla Hill wrote a fantastic article on the Five Great Things About Homeownership, with her top reasons being 1) Equity, 2) Relationships, 3) Predictability, 4) Ownership, 5) Great deals. She sees these as the top reasons to buy a home, and I agree: there really is no better time to buy, and the fulfillment of owning your own home can bring so much to life as a whole.

Expanding on the author’s points, I wanted to also add another reason why home ownership is an amazing thing: Creativity. When you own your own home, you get the fulfillment to make what you want with it. It’s yours to improve, change, adapt, and get creative with year-round. What’s more, you have no landlord to report to: you can choose to change your home as you wish (excluding architectural review boards and neighborhood groups, but you get my drift).

Are you thinking about jumping into homeownership? What’s holding you back? I’d love to talk more and hear your concerns. Email me at
