When you are thinking about buying a home, you must consider many things. Is it less expensive to rent or own is definitely one of the big questions.
Why Rent When You Can Own
According to this article in CreditDonkey.com: ” Homeownership has always been considered the gateway to the middle class and a benchmark of the American Dream. However, many families have chosen to find domestic bliss without paying a mortgage in recent years. What they’re missing are the big benefits of homeownership that just can’t be replaced by renting.
Research shows that owning your own home has distinct advantages over renting, especially when it comes to building your net worth and providing a stable environment for your family. If you’re sitting on the wrong side of the white picket fence debating whether to rent or buy your next home, read our list to see why owning your own home is better than renting.
We are going to cover a couple of reasons here:
Owning can be cheaper than renting
Although buying a house is more expensive at the outset, it can actually be cheaper than renting in the long term if you play your cards right. According to real estate website Trulia, homeownership is 38% cheaper on average than renting nationally, which is a 3% decrease from 2013.
You can build equity.
One of the most significant benefits of homeownership is building equity, which is your share of the value of your home. In more technical terms, it’s the difference between the market value of your home and the amount that you still owe.
It increases your net worth.
Homeownership is more than just the American Dream, it’s also been an effective way to build one’s net worth. Sure, business acumen and investing know-how are other ways to build wealth, but for the average Joe, homeownership has been the most tried and true method of building net worth.
Bottom Line – Homeownership allows you to stay in one place, choose your children’s schools, save money, build equity and increase your net worth. It is true that you are paying a mortgage whether you rent or own. Why not invest in your own future instead of building up your landlord’s wealth?
