With being a home owner you have the ability to change things inside and outside of your home. Don't like the red shag carpeting from the 70's? Replace it with one of the new carpet trends. Replace the bathroom avocado sink & toilet. With renting you are typically limited on what you can and can't do. Normally you can do some painting and hand pictures on a wall, but make sure you patch the holes before you move out or you'll probably get charged for each hole.
Renting you have no privacy. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything your neighbor is saying while at the same time they can hear you. Tired of having people over and the neighbor upstairs or downstairs is complaining because the music is too loud or you are laughing and having a good time. Living in your own home allows you to have a bit more freedom and space to do as you please even if it's early in the morning or late at night. Want to sit outside on a nice day, but all the good spots under the shaded tree are taken? With owning a home you have the ability to sit outside in peace & quiet in your own yard without others intruding on your space.
Part of the community
When you are a homeowner you not only own your home, you are part of the local community. With being a homeowner you have a vested interest in not only your home, but also the community. As a homeowner you are more likely to get involved in your local community events or go to the city or town meetings to vote on issues that are important to you.
