A Home is Where Your Story Begins

The Home Ownership Advantage

It is tempting to rent when you move to a different location. However, buying is typically a better financial option. Here are a few of the key economic benefits of purchasing:

Wealth Building

With rent, your landlord builds equity. When you own the property, you are building equity and security for you and your family.


Larger assets, like a house, will grow in absolute value more quickly than smaller assets such as mutual funds, even when the rate of appreciation is the same. Also, because part of your mortgage payment goes to pay down what you owe each month, the effects of leverage are enhanced and you build equity.

Inflation Protection

Your entire rent payment is subject to inflation. Only a small portion of your mortgage payment can increase.

Tax Advantages

A mortgage payment is tax-deductible, while rent is not. That means your mortgage payment may be reduced by 20% or more after taxes.


Financial security is achievable if you're careful when it comes to buying and owning a home. By making your mortgage payments on time, you steadily build equity over the long term. The equity you'll build is something you will be able to pull from later if you need it for college, retirement, or renovations. Your home’s value may also appreciate over time, giving you even more equity.

And those are just a few of the reasons the Federal Reserve Board has found that homeowners have a net worth over ten times that of renters.
