The top 4 reasons to own a home cited by respondents were not financial.

1. It means having a good place to raise children & provide them with a good education

From the best neighborhoods to the best school districts, even those without children at the time of purchasing their home, may have this in the back of their mind as a major reason for choosing the location of the home that they purchase.

2. You have a physical structure where you & your family feel safe

It is no surprise that having a place to call home with all that means in comfort and security is the #2 reason.

3. It allows you to have more space for your family

Whether your family is expanding, or an older family member is moving in, having a home that fits your needs is a close third on the list.

4. It gives you control over what you do with your living space, like renovations and updates

Looking to actually try one of those complicated wall treatments that you saw on Pinterest? Want to finally adopt that puppy or kitten you’ve seen online 100 times? Who’s to say that you can’t in your own home?

The 5th reason on the list, is the #1 financial reason to buy a home as seen by respondents:

5. Owning a home is a good way to build up wealth that can be passed along to my family

Either way you are paying a mortgage. Why not lock in your housing expense now with an investment that will build equity that you can borrow against in the future?

Most people know Amy Dginguerian from her time in front of the camera as an actress, model and host, or behind the lens as a Producer in Hollywood. Amy built her Hollywood career with a simple strategy; be professional, be persistent, be courteous and be honest. Her hard work and determination took her from starring roles on TV and Film, to gracing the covers and inside of hundreds of magazines to Campaigns for some of the biggest companies in the world. She is also a 2-time Billboard Recording artist and also an Author.

But what most people don’t know about Amy Dginguerian is that she has always had a great appreciation and knack as a businesswoman. She started a modeling agency in one of the most competitive Cities in the world, (Hollywood) successfully represented over 400 models and talent. She kept her business thriving while traveling the world as a “WWE Diva.” Amy also took her love of business while she was garnering success as an actress and model and parlayed it into something that she truly loved- homes. Amy’s passion for homes and home ownership was realized after she bought her first investment property. She was fortunate enough to understand the real estate market and make smart investments that truly paid off. While most of her peers were struggling to make rent, Amy felt blessed to own a multitude of money making properties.

Amy became a Mom for the first time to miracle twins in May of 2009. Becoming a mother helped stir the fire of appreciation she has always had for home ownership and Real estate investments and so she decided to become a Licensed Sales Agent. She is also the Co-founder of JustSold.com.
