We often talk about the financial reasons why buying a home makes sense. But, more often than not, the emotional reasons are the more powerful or compelling reasons.
No matter what shape or size your living space is, the concept and feeling of home can mean different things to different people. Whether it’s a certain scent or a favorite chair, the emotional reasons why we choose to buy our own homes are typically more important to us than the financial ones.
1. Owning your home offers stability to start and raise a family
From the best neighborhoods to the best school districts, even those without children at the time of purchase may have this in the back of their minds as a major reason for choosing the location of the home that they purchase.
2. There’s no place like home
Owning your own home offers you not only safety and security, but also a comfortable place that allows you to relax after a long day!
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 this all into consideration when buying your dream home!
4. You have control over renovations, updates, and style
Looking to actually try one of those complicated wall treatments that you saw on Pinterest? Tired of paying an additional pet deposit for your apartment building? Or maybe you want to finally adopt that puppy or kitten you’ve seen online 100 times? Who’s to say that you can’t in your own home?
Whether you are 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 house a home.

"After nearly a year on the market with no viable offers, I was ready to give up on my selling my home. A friend recommended Lisa Handley since she had just sold her house very quickly and for a great price. After interviewing Lisa, I decided to give her a shot. Boy am I glad I did! Lisa gave me a few quick and inexpensive ideas for updating and staging my home, and she even pitched in a helped me with the work. She also marketed my home extensively and got prospective buyers through the door. As a result, my home sold in a short period of time and for close to full asking price!
If you want a realtor who works hard for you, then go with Lisa Handley. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the results she got for me!"
