Why Buy? The Home Buying Process E-mail Updates My Property Manager

Welcome to Clarke Realty

Why Buy?

A survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors® of 6,000 homeowners and 2,000 renters revealed several important answers:

  • Pride in owning: Most people buy homes to have control over where they live.
  • Dislike paying rent: Almost equal portions of owners and renters – close to 7 in 10 – said a dislike of paying rent was an important reason to buy.
  • Make home a reflection of you: Owners ability to control and modify a home’s features.
  • Settling down: 6 in 10 renters said “settling down” was an important reason to buy.
  • Good investment: Owners and renters said the investment aspect of ownership was important.
  • Long-Term appreciation. People consider home ownership a good investment because they view it as a long-term venture.
  • Leverage investment: People borrow a great deal to buy a home, yet they receive the full benefits of price appreciation.
  • Source of savings: Home ownership always has and continues to comprise the single largest source of savings for American households.
  • Sacrifices are worth it: Almost 7 in 10 renters in the NAR home ownership survey said they planned to buy a home in the future.

We take the stress out of the process. Let Clarke Realty find you a home!
