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.

With three girls all around the age range of needing a phone, Walmart is helping us save our green and find the gold. 

The oldest girls have been using a phone service for awhile
 in which we've had to ultimately put a cap on their data. Kids these days are very communicative and inundated with social media. Ava, our youngest has 
been talking about wanting a phone lately but we hadn't found the right plan for her to be on.
She has been working very hard for the Short Course State Finals in Richmond and to congratulate her, her dad and I felt it was time she had her own phone. With five day a week practices, allowing her to have a phone in case of an emergency was becoming a necessity. (You never know when crazy things will happen: Just today a tree fell on our car while we were in it!)

When we let her know she was getting her own phone like her sisters, she was ecstatic.  With Walmart's Family Mobile's NEW 4G LTE service, Ava has all the Unlimited Text, Talk and Data she needs (up to 500MB of 4G LTE data) at only $29.88(for the first line) a month. 



We drove to our neighborhood Walmart, found the Walmart Family Mobile Display and began the search for the phone that would be the first phone for Ava. She wound up choosing the Alcatel Evolve 2. It is a smartphone with web capabilities and feels right nice when you hold it. 






Going to State Champs with the new phone was an experience for Ava. It was nice to be able to reach her in the locker room after the meet was over. While we waited patiently outside for her to shower and dress our stomachs growled for lunch. I popped her a text asking when she was going to be ready. She responded easily with the touchscreen letters and let us know she was barely out of the shower. As fast as a swimmer as she is, in other areas she is pokey. 

She is loving the new phone and we are loving the price!
