As kids, we never have to worry about the responsibilities of being an adult and so we try to put it off for as long as possible if we can. The day will come however, when you have to venture out on your own and build your own life. You may get married and so your responsibilities increase two-fold and if kids come onto the scene, then it just keeps rising from there. One of the main responsibilities as a parent is to make sure that your family has a roof over their heads and finding the right home is not as easy as some would expect.
You first need to figure out what kind of property is suitable for your needs and what size that you want it to be. Obviously, the larger the home, the more expensive that it is to buy. However, many people are looking at a three-storey house plan (called แบบแปลนบ้านสามชั้น in Thai) as a way to create a larger home, but taking up the same space as a conventional 2 storey property. Having your own home comes with many benefits and here are some of them.
- Somewhere to hang your hat – We all want somewhere that we can really call home and when you buy your property, then it is yours. This means that you are no longer renting and your landlord just can’t throw you out at short notice because he wants to sell the property. This is peace of mind that every person needs and you get it when you invest in owning a property.
- Create your dream home – When you were renting, you were not able to make structural changes to the property because it didn’t belong to you. Now, that you are the registered owner, you can begin to make plans to create the dream home that you have always wanted, but were never able to achieve until now. Dreams can happen and it’s up to you to take the necessary first steps.
Any new home owner will tell you about their relief when they signed on the dotted line and they eventually got themselves on to the property ladder. There is a great sense of joy knowing that you are now able to build for your future and the future of your family group. You now have somewhere to call home and no one can take it from you as long as you continue to make your mortgage payments.
