The Advantages Of Buying A Home
Homes typically increase in value, build equity and provide a nest egg for the future.
Your costs are predictable and more stable than renting because they’re ideally based on a fixed-rate mortgage.
The interest and property tax portion of your mortgage payment is a tax deduction.
There’s pride in homeownership, which also closely ties you to your community.
Start Investing Early
Building an investment portfolio can help you to realise your long-term financial goals; a nest egg for your retirement, repaying a mortgage early or paying for university fees for your children. While a savings account can offer easy access and security of guaranteed capital, returns can be modest; therefore investing in the stockmarket can provide stronger returns over the long-term albeit at a higher level of risk.
Buy an Insurance

Besides the obvious monetary benefits of living modestly (saving money), there are numerous psychological benefits.
