The Incredible Joy of Owning a Home!

If you haven't bought a home yet, you're missing out on a wonderful feeling! That moment when you walk through your doors, throw your purse or keys on the table, plop down on your couch and breathe a sigh of relief while thinking, "Finally, it's ours or mine!" And the joy of looking at all of your boxes, getting to think about why you buy so much stuff, then giving yourself a moment to take a nap because you worked hard to get here and earned it! Yes, that's a real feeling!


We often hear, and read, about the cost effectiveness of home ownership. The equity build-up, the freedom it can give us from finances in our retirement years, and a plethora of other ways owning a home can be a positive impact on your bottom dollar. But we don't often hear about the emotional impact owning a home can have. Yes, there will be days the fridge is acting silly and you need to call your home warranty, or days you have to get outside to mow your own yard, but nothing beats the pride and joy of owning a home.

There is a sense of security, and a sense of "this is mine and I worked my way up to this moment," that provides moments of bliss. The ability to do with your home as you please and the privacy it provides can't be beat.


Home ownership also gives you the ability to put down some roots. And I mean that figuratively and literally. You get to build memories through the holidays and go through many milestones with your family, that leave a significant impact into the later years. You also get to build bonds with your neighbours, and grow in a community oriented neighbourhood. With rentals, people come and go annually, but there are deeper roots planted with building relationships with those living next to you. Potlucks, Canada Day and New Year's Eve spent lighting fireworks, and just the excitement of getting to know each other and build new relationships.



Buying a home isn't about the dollars and cents for everyone, sometimes it's just about the joy of owning your own place, and getting to build amazing memories in it. If you've been longing for this, get in touch with a me, and make it happen. You owe it to yourself to make your dreams come true!
