The Advantages of Home OwnershipThe social advantages of home ownership may look different from one person to the next. But whether you’re looking to get to know your neighbors, or to put down roots and raise a family, studies show that homeowners enjoy a better quality of life. They are happier, healthier and feel a greater sense of control over their lives and their finances.
As a homeowner, you’ll have the freedom to redecorate, renovate and modify your home as you wish—or maybe to put in that garden you’ve always wanted. You can rest easy knowing that a landlord can’t raise your rent or sell the building unexpectedly. And if you have children, they have the security of staying with a single school.
