grayfox3789133dUhmmm, the problem I see (as arguments against you) is that, all of that can be achieved using (at least) several paid online services...
So, if you really, really want a personal in-house server, you could do the math and prove how much you'd save by having your own, instead of paying anual fees for online services.
Also, you could use some real-life stories of data loss to show one benefit or having it under your own control (for example: gitlab's last year data loss).
I can't think of much more.

You know how you like shoes/dresses/whatever? I'd like a personal server because I can keep my data private and can guarantee a 100% uptime within the house (long live LAN), which can keep the movies and series accessible via your phone, TV and computer! It is almost a one time investment (not considering power bills, but I doubt it will add very much) and I will be set for quite some! (Explicitly be vague for how long you will be set, I assume you want to buy new gadgets in the future too :p)
