    10 Reasons Why Homeownership Never Goes Out Of Style

But for those ready to own, homeownership has historically served as a vehicle for Americans to build equity, start businesses, put kids through college, and retire with comfort and dignity. Of course, there are some other reasons why homeownership is great, too. So as we cap off National Homeownership Month today, I thought I’d share.

    1. Forget about renewing that lease every year.
