Periodically C.A.R., the California Association of Realtors, publishes newsletters, e mags and other useful information which I find interesting and helpful. One such email I get from them is called “One Cool Thing”. Last month’s graphic was titled “The Financial Perks of Home Ownership”. Besides the financial considerations listed here, there is one other benefit of homeownership that it adds so much to your bottom line that it should have been included.
This is the pleasure you receive from owning your own home and how it affects every aspect of one’s daily life that it adds to your net in almost everything you do. Just remember back to when you rented and your landlord raised the rent and all of a sudden living there became a struggle. Think about your color choices and the ability to paint it almost any color you want. Don’t you derive please when you come home and put your feet up. Doesn’t this cause you to have a better attitude and who knows, maybe with such the raise or promotion at work is yours.
And finally, maybe you are fortunate to have bought wisely or experienced the appreciation gains which have happened over the last year. Granted this is part of the net worth mentioned below, but it adds to your comfort knowing you have your own roof over your head. Thus, let me put my nearly 30 years experience to work for you and help you find the perfect Napa Valley property and add some to your bottom line.
