Large amounts of satisfaction and independence usually accompany buying a home. Homeowners live in a property that is legitimately theirs. There is no reason to worry about loud neighbors, landlords or using old appliances from the stone age. Not only that, once you own a home you can do pretty much anything you want to it (so long as the neighborhood’s Homeowner’s Association isn’t breathing down your neck). A modification that 100% of homeowners should consider? Adding a secret room or passageway somewhere inside. Not only will it make your house a bajillion times cooler, but then you can start playing pranks on your guests. Win-win.
