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.

Leeve's First Day at the River












I've been a funk lately. You ever get where you feel like you put one foot forward and then have to take twenty back?

Douglas now has a puppy. She wanted one forever and even though I was like, "The last thing you need is a puppy," she wanted one. She doesn't live at home anymore and now can do whatever she wants. 

You know how it was to be 18. 

No one knows anything except me and I am the ruler of my domain! 

It is quite funny to watch your child as the mother of another being--- a puppy is vibrant and rowdy. A nice day at the beach to relax and enjoy the afternoon? Well, that'll happen another day. 

Levee (pronounced Leh-vee) had a ball. 

She loves the water,

and digging under the chairs, 
and chewing water bottles, 
and stepping in her water bowl, 
and giving grandma sandy hugs and shakes... :) 

You know the drill. 

Isn't my GrandPup the cutest?
