Today we’ll be discussing the reasons given by the Harvard Business Review about the advantages of owning a home. Here are five financial benefits to homeownership:

1.    Housing is typically the only leveraged investment you have available.
2.    You’re paying the cost of housing whether you own or rent, so you might as well own.
3.    Owning a home is a way to put your money into forced savings as you build up equity in your property.
4.    There are substantial tax benefits to owning your home.
5.    Owning a home is a hedge against inflation.

While these benefits are largely financial, there are also emotional advantages to owning a home that you may not have considered:

1.    Owning a home is a good way to pass along wealth to your family.
2.    You have a physical shelter to provide space and safety for your family.
3.    A home is a place to raise your kids.
4.    Owning a home gives you total control over your living space and your overall life in general.

These are just a few of the ways in which owning a home can benefit you fiscally and improve your quality of life at the same time.
