Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: 7 Good Reasons Homeownership is Strong in Clarksville TN

7 Good Reasons Homeownership is Strong in Clarksville TN

June is National Homeownership Month

I believe in owning real property. I believe in owning your own home. In Clarksville TN there are strong reasons that homeownership is a source of personal satisfaction and builds personal wealth.

Homeownership in Clarksville TN


Take a look at the reasons to buy a home and realize the American Dream.

  1. Buying can be less expensive than renting. Rental properties are expensive and qualifying to rent can be more difficult than buying your home. With pet deposits, first and last month rent due, high security deposits, all this adds up and takes a chunk of money. Some of these expenses you will never get back.
  2. Homeownership still creates pride in ourselves. it is an accomplishment and an achievement.
  3. Owning your own home provides freedom to decorate as you choose. Paint your walls bright red, black or purple. They are yours to do as you wish.
  4. Homeowners still have tax advantages of interest and property tax deductions. This can reduce your tax liability to the government.
  5. There is pride in knowing you own your home. You are investing in yourself and not in your landlord. If you want to make improvements, they are your improvements to enjoy and can increase your investment value.
  6. In Clarksville TN, homes continue to appreciate. In the last 12 months, home values have increased on the average of about 6%. 
  7. Owning your home provides future security. One day it will be paid off and if you had been renting this whole time, you would have nothing to show for it. Your financial worth grows as the value of your home goes up.

Celebrate homeownership and all the reasons you should own a home if you haven't already. It is the American Way. It is the Tennessee Way. It is the Clarksville Way.

Home ownership is a wealth builder Debbie Reynolds but for some, they would rather rent and leave the ownership to someone else!

Good morning Debbie Reynolds,

I agree with each of your points on home ownership. Buyers would be wise to read your post and understand why owning is all around a better way to go than renting for most people.

Wiki: Clarksville is currently one of the fastest-growing large cities in Tennessee. At its present rate of growth, the city will displace Chattanooga by 2020 as the fourth-largest city in Tennessee.

Those are seven very good reasons to consider homeownership, not only in Clarksville, but many other areas across the country.

Good afternoon Debbie - I only see very narrow reasons to rent including temporary and credit.

Hi Debbie

I agree with everything you shared here. Some people have no choice but to rent, for a host of reasons, but for those who can afford to buy the benefits are huge.

There is nothing more satisfying than helping someone find their own home and guiding them through the process of ownership. For some folks, who may have to move frequently for work, or are new to a community, renting may initially be the smarter option.  But as soon as someone is able, putting down roots is the way to go.
