I’ve been a home owner since 1977. That Palace was $33,000 back in the day. 10% Down giving me a PITI of $315/month, I felt like a king! I drove past it the other day. It made me start thinking. I’ve owned and lived in 7 homes, three with my bride. What was it that kept me in the market through “thick and thin”?
I said to myself, “I bet it would be easy to come up with my 10 Reasons for Homeownership”. Here I go:
1. Always Knowing Where Home Is.
2. Being Part of a Community.
3. Knowing My Neighbors.
4. Making It My Own.
5. Backyard BBQs With Neighbors.
6. Knowing My Mail-person.
7. Mowing The Yard.
8. Planting A Tree.
9. Sitting On The Front Porch Feeling A Sense Of Pride!
10. Paying It Off!!
Now, a lot of homeowners will read this. What makes you stay in the market through thick and thin?
