More Than the Money: Emotional Benefits of Owning a Home

Many builders and industry professionals talk up the financial benefits of owning a home versus renting—but the emotional benefits are often overlooked. Investing your money into a home is obviously important to your financial future, but the team at Bill Clark Homes is well-aware of how homeownership impacts your family as a whole.  

Plant your family’s roots 

We’ve focused on building family traditions through thoughtful home and neighborhood construction since 1977, and we know how much value is placed on the safety, security and stability of your family. When you move on from renting to owning, the members of your household can find comfort in knowing that the home is yours for as long as you need it to be—no forced moves due to negligent landlords, exponential increases in rent or changes in management. Additionally, owning a home means your children can stay in one school district, develop strong friendships and start to understand the benefit of working towards a significant goal like homeownership. 

Make it your own 

When renting a home or apartment, you have very few options in the personalization and customization of your space. The most you can really get away with is painting walls, and even then, it could lead to more work down the road when you’re asked to repaint—or lose your deposit. Owning a home gives you the power to personalize every single aspect of it, and buying a home from Bill Clark Homes gives you endless possibilities. 

Once you select a Greenville floor plan or Wilmington floor plan that’s perfect for your family, our Design Consultants will meet with you at the design studio in your preferred market. Options for flooring, cabinetry, backsplash, countertops, fireplaces, paint colors, hardware and more allows you to cater your home to the exact specifications and style you’ve been dreaming of. Be sure to browse our finishes and materials on the design center page for inspiration and the photo gallery to get a glimpse of what owning a Bill Clark home looks like. 

Immerse yourself in the community 

When you own a home, your connection to the community grows more every day. You’ll have the ability to get to know your neighbors, participate in community events, get involved in local activities and more. Being a homeowner also provides a greater commitment to the area around your house, and might push you to be more involved in local issues like development, schools, traffic control and other community affairs. Owning will give you greater pride in your home, as well as greater pride in the surrounding community. 

Bill Clark Homes is also dedicated to bettering the communities we build in, which is why we place such a great emphasis on giving back to local organizations that help out our neighbors.
