The Home and the Need to Belong

Aug 18, 2007
Only those who have lived away from home actually understand the need to belong. As long as we spend our days in the place that we call home, we are unaware of this need. However, as soon as we are uprooted, we realize the value of "Home Sweet Home".

Only when one is living the life of an outsider in an alien city does one actually recognize the need to find one's roots. Perhaps, that is one of the reasons why we all consider eventually buying a home. After all, we will be able to call it our own for a long period of time.

It does not really matter whether you choose to buy a house in the place where you grew up or whether you look at a home that is quite a distance away. What matters is that you feel a tie that binds you to that place.

A house is a long-term investment. So, unless you are looking to either sell it or let it out anytime in the near future, you should look for a house that gives you a sense of belonging. How do you come across such a place? Now, that is the easy part. Just listen to your intuition. Remember, women are not the only ones who are blessed with an intuition; men possess it too.

Once you have found a house or an apartment that touches your heart, get some quotes for it. Remember, you are not going to be able to call a home as your own unless you are able to pay for it. Do you have enough savings to take care of such an investment? What if you do not have sufficient money for that? Would it be sensible to apply for a a loan and be a debtor for years to come?

Those are questions that you will have to decide the answers to. Most people these days are have no issues with the idea of taking loans and mortgages to fund their house-buying expenses. In fact, it makes sense to get a home mortgage to help you pay for that dream house of yours.

There are hundreds of home mortgage loans that all kinds of loan seekers can avail of for that perfect house. Just look around for a while and you will soon come up trumps with a great mortgage loan to suit your requirements. As for being indebted for years to come, that is the price of trying to find your roots.
