Am I missing something by not owning a home?

I was about to buy a house in Skyrim, but then I saw that it was 5 grand to buy it.

was just wondering what I would actually gain from buying a house. What is in the house? Do I get storage or a grinding stone or anything?

When you buy a house, you can sleep there and store your stuff without fear that it will disappear.

A basic house contains a bed and a chest for your things. You can buy improvements such as a cooking pot, alchemy table, tanning rack, additional storage, etc.

The improvements available to you vary by the town you buy the house in. They're described in detail here along with the prices for each house and its upgrades.

Other than that, you also get an achievement (Citizen) for buying a house.
