Nothing beats putting your feet up and thinking, "I own this place."
You can't put a price on the feelings of satisfaction and permanence that come from owning your own home.
It comes from things like the freedom of being able to remodel to suit the needs or your growing family or tastes; or gardening and barbecuing
on the new deck; even from watching the kids play in the yard or chatting with
a neighbor over the fence. The biggest benefits are putting down roots in the
community. None of these benefits are fully available to you when you rent.
