Top 5 Reasons Investing in Your Home is a Good Idea

Ok, so maybe these aren't EVERYONE'S top 5 reasons, but they are at least GOOD reasons to invest in your own home.  I'm grabbing this blog post from one I posted on my personal blog.  For the full details, visit my post, but here's the skinny on what I wrote:

Reason 1:  Cheap Funding - Home Equity Lines of Credit cost VERY little, so take advantage if you can.

Reason 2:  Big Discounts From Contractors - They are begging for your business.  Maybe less begging today than a year ago, but some contractors are still hungry for business and this makes them more negotiable on their rates.

Reason 3: Going Green - Certain improvements will make your home more energy efficient.  Who doesn't want to save on energy bills?!?!  Beyond this, the word 'green' is a big real estate buzz word that you can use when marketing your home for sale.

Reason 4: Intelligent Improvements Add Value - I'm talking about small price tag items that make a big visual difference, thereby attracting a premium price from buyers when you go to sell your home.

Reason 5:  You live in your home so you should enjoy how it feels and looks!
