In a world where one in five Brits feel held back by not owning a home, the urge to switch from renting to owning is stronger than ever. Research from The Media People shows us why. Read below the top 10 reasons why renters want a place of their own.
Feeling like you truly belong where you live
There’s a unique magic in feeling a deep sense of belonging where you live. It’s not just about having a roof over your head; it’s establishing a connection with a place that becomes an integral part of who you are.
Owning a home isn’t just a financial milestone’ it’s a symbolic gesture of stepping into adulthood. The pride that comes with managing and maintaining your own space is a rite of passage many renters eagerly anticipate.
Playing host for a change
For those accustomed to being the guests, owning a home opens the possibility of playing host. Transforming your space into a hub for friends and family gatherings fosters a sense of community and strengthens personal connections.
Cultivating green dreams
Whether it’s a small herb garden or a big veggie plot, owning a home is like having a blank canvas to create your own green sanctuary. Growing your fruits and veggies doesn’t just amp up your cooking game – it also lets you tap into the natural beat of life.
Culinary creativity unleashed
A home kitchen is more than just a place to cook; it’s a canvas for culinary exploration. Owning your space allows you to develop your cooking and baking skills without limitations, turning your kitchen into a haven for creativity.
Furry friends welcome
For many, the dream of having a pet is a powerful motivator to own a home. Whether it’s fostering, adopting, or simply providing a stable environment for a four-legged friend, homeownership opens the door to a life shared with a beloved companion.
To start a family
The desire to start a family often goes hand in hand with the dream of homeownership. Creating a stale and nurturing environment becomes a tangible goal, transforming a house into a home where memories are made, and traditions are built.
Rooted in community
Owning a home enables you to put down roots in a local area, empowering you to make a positive impact on the community. Whether through volunteering, supporting local businesses, or engaging in community initiatives, homeownership fosters a sense of responsibly and connection.
Wild spaces for wildlife
Homeownership allows you to create a wild space in your outdoor space, contributing to wildlife conservation and creating a haven for local fauna.
Room to grow, room to succeed
For aspiring entrepreneurs, having the space to set up a home office or launch a business is a game-changer. Homeownership isn’t just about a physical space; it’s about creating room for your professional dreams to flourish.
