Just a Few Simple Reasons Renting Can Be Better Than Buying
Reason #1: You can change your location whenever you want
Owning a home and raising a family are top priorities for some people. Settling down and finding a safe and homey suburb to live in for the next ten to twenty years is perfect for that. On the other hand, there are quite a few people who aren’t sure where they’ll be next year, let alone in a decade. This makes the idea and option of buying a home a not so feasible option.
When you rent, you have the flexibility to move next month or next year without the stress of having to find renters for your home and/or maintain a property remotely.
Reason #2: If the water heater breaks as a renter you don’t pay for it
As a renter, surrounded by homeowners you’re sure to witness the hidden costs involved in owning a home. “A friend of mine recently had to have her heater replaced and consequently ate baked beans for four months afterwards.” says renter Jackie Smith. When you rent, it’s the home owners/landlords responsibility to pay for the repairs on and in the property.
“It’s nice to not have to drop a couple of grand per year on things like curtains, hot water systems and replacing toilet cisterns,” says Jackie.
Reason #3: Renting can be less pricey than buying
People many times buy a house as a way to save money, they do this by putting most of their monies into a home and property where it can’t be touched, rather than a bank account where it’s always accessible for withdrawal. Instead of buying a home though, one can save just as well with paying rent and putting the extra money in a high returns investment bank account rather than buying property.
Whether you rent or buy, it’s important that you do what’s right for your own circumstances and your own financial situation.
