Why Buy a Home?

There are many reasons why you should buy rather than rent. Maybe it makes sense to buy now because your credit report is in good shape, because your job is finally secure, or because you want a better life for you and your family - room to grow! You may want to buy so that you’ll have something to borrow against, for large upcoming expenses (like a college education or a wedding).
