The Dream of Homeownership Is Worth the Effort

KCM Site 04 27.jpg





If you’re in the market to buy a home this season, stick with it. Homebuyers face challenges in any market, and today’s is no exception. But if you persevere, your decision to purchase a home will be worth the effort in the end. In fact, a recent survey from Bankrate shows homeownership is so powerful that:



Nearly three in four homeowners say they would still buy their current home if they had it to do [sic] all over again.”



That means the results – owning a home and the benefits that come with it – outweigh the effort needed to achieve their goal. If you’re a homebuyer, let that provide you with the confidence to know the work you’re putting in today will pay off for years to come. Here are a few reasons to stick with your search and focus on the outcome.


Homeownership Contributes Significantly to Your Financial Well-Being


The National Association of Realtors (NAR) lists several motivations to consider if you’re thinking about buying a home. One of the top financial reasons is the equity you build. As NAR says:



“Money paid for rent is money that you’ll never see again, but mortgage payments let you build equity . . . Building equity in your home is a ready-made savings plan.”



Your equity is a powerful tool you can leverage in a number of ways. And with recent home price appreciation, homeowners are seeing record levels of equity today. That may be one reason why so many people view owning a home as a great investment and a top indicator of financial well-being. As the survey from Bankrate mentioned above shows:



“. . . Americans place a higher value on homeownership than on any other indicator of economic stability, . . .”



Owning a home ranks above other major accomplishments like retirement, having a successful career, and getting a college degree. That indicates just how impactful the financial benefits of homeownership truly are.


The Emotional Benefits of Owning a Home Are Powerful


Of course, homeownership is more than an investment. In their list of top reasons to buy a home, NAR also highlights some of the powerful, non-financial aspects of homeownership. Among them is the opportunity to customize your home to reflect your personality and needs. As they say:


“The home is yours. You can decorate any way you want and choose the types of upgrades and new amenities that appeal to your lifestyle.”


Another benefit homeowners enjoy is the stability it provides. Homeowners typically stay put longer than renters. According to NAR, when you remain in one place longer than a few years, you can grow closer to your community. And that can enhance your sense of pride and lead to better relationships.


What Does That Mean for You?


The benefits of homeownership are powerful, as Leslie Rouda Smith, President of NAR, says:


"From building personal wealth and fostering communities, to strengthening social stability and driving the national economy, the value of homeownership is indisputable.”


Even if you face challenges in today’s market, the payoff when you succeed and purchase a home will be worth it.


Bottom Line


If you’re planning to buy a home this year, there are incredible benefits waiting for you at the end of your journey. Let’s connect to discuss everything homeownership has to offer.
