On the last weekend in November of this year the Wall Street Journal published a sentimental article by Jason Zweig called “The Real Value of a Home.” It’s a beautiful take on home ownership on a very personal level regarding Jason and his brother helping their 87 year old mother get ready to move out of her house she’s lived in for half a century. The article shows how a home is more than an investment.
“It is the place that helps shape who we are. Your generation may well be thankful that you do not have to bear the burdens of owning one – the mortgage, the maintenance, the pain of pulling up roots that run for decades deep. But the reality may be to be thankful for the blessings.” For the whole article click on the link below the image of Butterfly Beach in Montecito by local Santa Barbara artist Chris Potter called “The Arch.”
