Believe it or not, the benefits of homeownership go far beyond financial security. Did you know that a child’s health and happiness have been tied into living in a family home in a secure neighborhood? There are also reports that education, mental health, and physical fitness can all be tied into living in a home that belongs to you.

Homeowners are also often more engaged in their community in such actions like volunteering, getting to know the neighbors, and purchasing from local shops. That means that when you buy a home, you are buying more than a building, you are buying into a civic area that offers a sense of community and fellowship.
