5 Reasons Buying a Home is Better Than Renting!

Purchasing a home offers amazing financial benefits. Renting a home offers amazing financial benefits for the owner of the property you are renting from. Keep that in mind the next time you think about staying in your rental.

1. You Are Paying For A Home Regardless if You Rent or Buy

Some will argue renting eliminates the costs of property taxes and home repairs. All renters should realize that all the expenses your landlord must incur (property taxes, repairs, insurance and etc.) are rolled into your rent anyway along with profit margin.

2.  Home Ownership Is a Form of Forced Savings

Studies have shown homeowners have a net worth 44X times higher than a renter. It was recently estimated that a family buying a average home this past January could build more than $40,000 in family wealth in the next five years.

While I've Been Away

Ava has been swimming in multiple swim meets and that means early, early hours- LIKE 5 a.m. I don't think I have ever gotten up so early. 

We finally had Christmas with the kids and by that I mean, we finally got our gifts. We went to Snowshoe, West Virginia and skied for three days. It was beautiful and I recommend to anyone who skis, Snowshoe is the Mac Momma on the East Coast. 

Then the following weekend, last weekend, Joe and I turned right back around and headed up 81 to Knoxville, Tennessee for me to sing in one of my bestest friends weddings. It was beautiful and fast. When we got back Sunday, Joe was right back out the door to San Diego. 

The girls and I have been cleaning house, going to school, working and trying to get some sleep in. I've been addicted to The American's on Amazon Prime when I can carve in some time. Hope all is well with you. 

We are having a party for friends on Valentines Day because everyone wants to visit. I'm excited because Joe will be home. If he brings me a Vermont Teddy Bear though it may be the end for us. 

I'll be updating the camera roll on here very soon.
