When a Charlotte House Becomes a Happy Home
We talk a lot about why it makes financial sense to buy a home, but more often than not we’re drawn to the emotional reasons for homeownership. As we’ve previously discussed, homeownership will always be a part of the American Dream.
No matter the size or shape of a living space, the feeling of a home means different things to different people. Whether it’s a certain scent or a favorite chair, the feel-good connections to our own homes are typically more important to us than the financial ones. This month, Keeping Current Matters (KCM), offers some great reasons why:
1. Owning your home offers stability
From the best neighborhoods to the top school districts, regardless of familial status, buyers often have this in the back of their minds as a major reason for choosing the location of the home they purchase.
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 re-charged and truly content.
3. You have more space for you and your family
Whether your family is expanding, an older family member is moving in, or you need to have a large backyard for your pets, you can take all this into consideration when buying your dream home, so the space truly works for you.
4. You have control over renovations, updates and style
Looking to actually try one of those complicated wall treatments you saw on Pinterest? Tired of paying an additional pet deposit to your landlord? Maybe you want to finally adopt that fur-baby puppy or kitten you’ve been hoping for. Who’s to say you can’t do all of these things in your own home?
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 make a Charlotte house a happy home. Considering buying? We’d love to help you realize your dream and leverage your live-in investment to build wealth. Call or text me at (704) 491-3310 or email me at SavvyBroker@me.com.
