Want a good place to raise children
Want a place where their family feels safe
Want more living space
Want control of that living space
Realize that owning makes better financial sense than does renting
(For those who question the validity of number five after the recent housing crisis, Harvard University just finished a study on the issue)
If you are considering purchasing a home, look at the five reasons mentioned above. If any of them apply to you and your family, perhaps it is time for you to take the plunge. With both prices and interest rates rising, waiting will only increase your monthly cost as we move forward.
