The Feeling of Owning a Home

Receiving the keys to your brand new home won’t be the end of your homeownership journey, but it’s usually the part where your feelings are at their peak. You ran the gauntlet of filing paperwork and inspecting the progress, so it’s only natural to feel that you’ve accomplished something big. Here are other feelings associated with getting a place you can call your own:


With your own home, you have the freedom to do whatever you want with it. You can install a few improvements without getting your landlord or building administrator’s permission (although you may still need permission from the local government). Paint the walls a different colour, put more gnomes in the garden, expand living space—you name it.


Hold your head high, knowing that you’re the latest member of an exclusive group that worked hard to own their own home. Homeownership gives the impression that the owner is successful because homes don’t come cheap. It doesn’t matter if the house is small; it’s still a house—your own.


You and your family will go about your daily lives, leaving and returning home—your home. You feel a sense of security, knowing that your loved ones are right where you need them to be. Although this entails more responsibility on ensuring security, keep in mind that you’re free to do whatever you deem is necessary and at your own pace.
