Buying a home helps your love life

Owning a home is a rewarding experience from many points of view

Are you considering buying/renting a home and you’re not sure of what the best option is? Of course, buying a house is a life-changing event for first-time buyers, but being a homeowner can offer many advantages.

First of all, homeowners can arrange and decorate their house following their tastes; renters, instead, do not have the same possibility. A rented home will have to be left in the original conditions when the renter moves away. Furthermore, renters usually do not invest in remodelling a rented house, as this investment is unlikely to pay off in the long run.

Buying a house is of course a rewarding experience for the new home owner. A homeowner’s net worth is higher than a renter’s. Owning a property is the first step to begin accumulating wealth and gives occupants a sense of stability, which is maybe the most longed-for quality in life.

An article appeared on CNN Money last week showed the results of a curious survey conducted by Harris Interactive. Out of 1,000 single people, more than a third of women claimed they would prefer dating a homeowner rather than a renter. 18% of men share this idea.

Only 2% of women and 3% of men said they were ready to date a renter. 62% of respondents said they prefer to date singles that live alone without roommates around. Finding love is going to be hard for boomerang kids, as less than 5% of survey respondents said they would go out with someone living in their childhood homes.

What about the features a house should have? A master bath is one of the biggest turn-ons for 64% of men and 75% of women. 55% of men and 72% of women cited walk-in closets; gourmet kitchens were indicated by 51% of men and 62% of women. The list, however, included hardwood floors, home theatres and outdoor decks.
