That moment when you walk through your doors, throw your purse or keys on the floor, plop down on your couch and breathe a sigh of relief while thinking, "Finally, it's ours (or mine)!"  and the joy of looking at all of your boxes, getting to roll your eyes about why you buy so much stuff, then giving yourself a moment to take a break because you worked hard to get here and earned it!  Yes, that's a real feeling.

We often hear, and read, about the cost effectiveness of home ownership. The equity build-up, the freedom it can give us from finances in our retirement years, and a plethora of other ways owning a home can be a positive impact on your bottom dollar. But we don't often hear about the emotional impact owning a home can have. Yes there will be days the fridge is acting up (currently our ice-maker has decided to freeze up) and you need to call your home warranty, or days you have to get outside to mow your yard, but NOTHING beats the pride of owning your own home.

Home ownership also gives you the ability to put down roots. You get to build memories through the holidays and go through many milestones with your family that leave a significant impact into the later years. You also get to build bonds with your neighbors and grow in a community oriented neighborhood, there are lots of these in Lubbock! The kind of places where the kids can play outside, and when your dog gets out a neighbor calls to tell you they have her.  Potlucks, 4th or July and New Year's Even spent lighting fireworks and the excitement of getting to know each other and build new relationships.

Buying a home isn't about the dollars and cents for everyone, sometimes it's about the joy of owning your own place and getting to build amazing memories.
