Emotional Reasons For Homeownership


Hey guys, so we talk a lot about why it makes financial sense to buy a home, but we’re drawn to the emotional reasons for homeownership more often than not.

No matter the living space, the feeling of a home means different things to different people. Whether it’s a specific scent or a favorite chair, the feel-good connections to our own homes are typically more important to us than the financial ones.

For me, it has the freedom to customize and create the home of my dreams. As some of you saw, my husband and I renovated our house a lot. We redid our entire kitchen. Watch our transformation here. We got to pick everything we wanted, which made our home feel more like home. We painted our walls, redid our floors, and changed minor hardware throughout the house. We dreamt of a day to own our home to do things like that and create a space that was solely our own. 

Here are some of the emotional reasons why.

1.Owning your home is an accomplishment worth celebrating

You’ve likely worked very hard to achieve this dream, and whether it’s your first home or your fifth, congratulations are for this milestone. You’ve earned it.

2.There’s no place like home

Owning your own home offers not only safety and security but also a comfortable place where you can simply relax and kick-back after a long day. Sometimes, that’s just what we need to feel recharged and truly content.

3.You can find more space to meet your needs

Whether you want more room in your home for your changing lifestyle (think: working from home, virtual school, or a personal gym), or you simply prefer to have a large backyard for socially-distant entertaining, you can invest in a location that truly works for your evolving needs.

4.You have control over renovations, updates, and your style

Looking to try one of those complicated wall treatments you saw on Pinterest? Or paint your entire home white as we did, you can!! Are you tired of paying an additional pet deposit for your apartment building? Maybe you want to finally adopt that fur-baby puppy or kitten you’ve been hoping for. You can do all of these things in your own home.

Bottom Line

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a move-up buyer who wants to start a new chapter in your life, now is a great time to reflect on the intangible factors that turn a house into a happy home.

As always, thank you for reading. I appreciate you and your time.
