Owning a home, your own piece of real estate provides a special sense of security. Buying a home gives your family that added benefit of ownership in the community. A permanent investment in real estate builds a foundation to raise kids and enjoy years of memories with family and friends. Home owners often discover a cathartic relationship develops with their new property. It compares to that of a sea captain’s fondness for their ship.
A home becomes an essential part of the family like a loving pet. It’s as though your property takes on it’s own personality. But every home requires lot’s of care and the hard work you’ve invested makes it a special part of the family that safe familiar environment.
“Homeownership itself is good for children and healthy families,” said Donald Haurin, author of the study and professor of real estate economics at Ohio State University. A child growing up in their own home feels vastly more confident about their sense of self and place in the community.
And technology is quickly becoming an increasing part of own your home ownership experience within the community. More often now people are working from their home Internet. Research finds 45% of Americans, work from home at least 2 days per week.
Peer to peer networking on mobile devices such as smart phones, laptops and tablets, enables us to work from our home or local community locations like Panera Bread. Video conferencing is now widespread among everyday users on FaceTime and Android apps.
Verizon just announced mobile 5G networks over 100 x faster than 4G is coming in 2018. Video streaming and mobile podcasts capabilities on 5G will make it very cost effective to work from home and virtually any location 24/7 says James Dean @ iHumanMobile.com.
And technology being used by groups like Western Development Corporation now enable individuals to “crowd source” local real estate funding opportunities. Using technology, we’re creating a greater sense of community, better education and quality of life for our kids.
So, the benefit of buying your own home goes beyond just building equity return on investment. Home ownership is now a place of family, friends and work within your community. A place of security that provides a stable foundation to raise kids more effectively. The home creates a feeling of value and healthy mindset for each family.
