 If we haven’t given you enough reasons lately to purchase a home, here are five more!  Eric Belsky, Managing Director of the Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University, recently wrote a paper on homeownership. The Keeping Current Matters team breaks it down for us here:

  2. You’re paying for housing whether you own or rent.
  3. Owning is usually a form of “forced savings.”
  4. There are substantial tax benefits to owning.
  5. Owning is a hedge against inflation.
