The feeling of being in a rented house is not very pleasant. If you have ever lived in a rented house, you will understand, when renting someone else's house, you will not want to fix the house because it is not yours. But unfortunately you are the one who owns that space every day, so you are the most miserable. Living in a rented house means that you are not the owner of that house, the feeling of uncertainty will still be present in you. Every January 21st, Own Your Own Home Day is celebrated every year to encourage people to choose to own their own home.

It is no exaggeration to say that home is a place to go. After a period of throwing ourselves out into the working society, following the cycle of work, surely all of us want to have a safe, stable, warm place of our own and loved ones to come back. The feeling after facing the hardships outside, we return to our own home is really wonderful. It can relieve the stress we face.

Real estate in the United States is entirely private property. When Americans buy a house, they buy the entire property of the land, including the space above and below it, including minerals if any, and have eternal ownership. Without the landlord's permission, any individual or government agency is not allowed to enter the house, of course, it is not allowed to destroy or move the furniture out of the house.

Unless there is an economic crisis, house prices generally only go up over time; therefore, investing in buying a home is never afraid of loss. For example, in California, a house of 1500 square feet (140 m2) 50 years ago cost $50,000, now it costs $500,000-600,000. That's why the average American changes houses every 7-10 years. The increase in house prices is also the reason why local governments encourage people to have their own houses, because the housing tax collected by the government will increase with the house price, which is beneficial to the local government. In the period 2000-2007, the price of medium-sized houses in the US increased by 48%, the revenue from housing tax increased by 62%; clearly beneficial to the government.
