There are some renters who have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that, unless you are living with your parents rent free, you are paying a mortgage - either yours or your landlord’s.
As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ that allows you to build equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.
Are you ready to put your housing cost to work for you?
Christina Boyle, Senior Vice President and Head of Single-Family Sales & Relationship Management at Freddie Mac, explains another benefit of securing a mortgage vs. paying rent:
“With a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, you’ll have the certainty & stability of knowing what your mortgage payment will be for the next 30 years – unlike rents which will continue to rise over the next three decades.”
This holiday season, why not give yourself the gift of homeownership? Lock in your housing costs for the next 30 years and guarantee you are the one building wealth.

Sometimes we all get so busy that we forget the loved one that is always waiting for us at the door. During this holiday time, we searched for several articles that may help with keeping your favorite furry friend content during all the rush.
Dog Treats at Christmas
Besides an “atta boy” and pat on the head from you, the next greatest reward your dog likes is a yummy treat. What’s more, giving your dog a treat makes you feel good, too. The very act of rewarding your best friend with his favorite treat not only reinforces training, but helps solidify the bond you share with your canine companion.
Fortunately, organic Christmas treats are a way you can spoil your dog without giving him an unhealthy snack. If you do not have access to a doggy bakery, you can find several healthy choices online, the healthiest being an organic or all natural treat.
For instance, Pampered Paw Gifts offers dog lovers organic and all natural products like salt free Christmas doggy cakes made with a rice cake and yogurt frosting, decorated in holiday colors, and trimmed in doggy bones.
The Christmas doggy treats look like pastries that come from a high-end human bakery and are exquisitely decorated in holiday colors in various dog-themed shapes. They not only look good enough for a person to eat for a Christmas treat, but are made with the finest human-grade ingredients. So, if your dog is willing to share with you, there is no harm in taking a nibble.
Other delectable dog treats you can expect to find online are cookies, bon bons, paw prints, paw cups, bones, reindeer, presents, mittens, santa paws, snowflakes, and wag sticks made from a peanut butter recipe and iced with yogurt. All items are free of byproducts, artificial color and flavors, and preservatives.
