    I think if the events of the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that there’s a time (when you’re financially able to make a downpayment and pay a mortgage) for homeownership, and a time (when you’re building, or re-building a solid credit history) for renting.

    There are plenty of great rental properties that offer all the amenities of a home of one’s own, with the notable exception of equity. You can own a condo in a high-rise building and have lousy neighbors, too; and not every homeowner has a great yard and tons of storage space.

    My point is not to disparage home-ownership; it’s simply to acknowledge that it’s not appropriate for everyone all the time. In our business, we focus on helping people find a place to live that’s the right fit for them — whether they’re buying or renting, it’s still the place they call home, and we should do what we can to help make it a happy one!

    It makes sense that people typically purchase homes so that they do not have to pay extra to have pets live in their apartments. My wife and I have just adopted a dog and want to find a new home with a large yard that he will be able to enjoy. It may be a good idea for us to start looking for some houses so that we can ensure that our dog is properly taken care of.

    It was interesting when you explained that home buyers are able to provide a better environment for pets in addition to the benefit of avoiding pet deposits and fees. Lately I’ve been wanting to learn about owning a home because my husband and I are considering moving to an area with cooler weather. I’m happy that you shared this article because we do have two dogs, and you helped me understand why buying a single family home would be a good option for us. https://www.gardnerregroup.com/homes-for-sale-in-portland-me

    I agree with you that buying a new real estate property can guarantee you a larger yard and more spacious storage areas. My sister and her family need to move to a bigger house because their family is growing, and her husband’s mom will be joining them. We’ll be sure to find a house for my sister’s family that’s accessible to both of my nieces’ school.

    Thanks for explaining that buying a home is a good idea if you are interested in having access to a yard. I remember my wife mentioning that she would like our newborn son to have plenty of room to play outside once he is old enough to walk. Maybe we should consider getting a home with a big yard.

    This post makes an interesting point that building equity through a second property. However, I do agree that before purchasing a second property it is important to look into the market condition and such. I will definitely look into the market condition before purchasing a property.

    I like that you said one of the main reasons why people want to buy a home is so they wouldn’t have to live so close to noisy and annoying neighbors who blast music in the middle of the night or have daily screaming matches. That’s actually the reason why my husband and I plan to buy a single-family home soon. We currently have married neighbors who fight physical loud fights daily that’s affecting our way of living. Great article!

    I think it’s great that you mentioned how home buyers have the freedom to make changes to their homes and can make upgrades to raise their property’s value. My wife and I have been thinking about buying a luxury house this summer, but we’d like to make sure that we have the freedom to add a swimming pool to the property in order to raise the home’s value when we sell it after we retire. We’ll be sure to find a house that will allow us to make as many changes as we want.

    It’s great that you talked about how purchasing a house is a great investment. Recently, my fiance and I started to talk about buying a house for us. We’ve been renting for a while now, and we think it might be time for us to have a place of our own. We’re grateful for your information about the perks of owning a house.

    When I got my first apartment, all I cared about was a place to eat, sleep and bathe. Over time, I grew tired of my neighbors’ noise and I realized that I’m just trashing my hard earn money to a place that I don’t even own. But now that I want to start a family, a house looks so appealing. We’ll still keep looking but it looks like we’re going to get one. Cheers!

    La conclusión de este análisis es que habrá debate entre comprar o rentar casa siempre que se pretenda imponer a otra persona una idea que no corresponde al momento particular que esté viviendo. Rentar no es tirar el dinero a la basura cuando las circunstancias específicas indican que es la mejor opción en ese momento.

    My husband and I got our first pets about three months ago. We own two little dogs. We just found out that we will now have to pay more money for our monthly rent where we live. After crunching the numbers, we have discovered that it might be more beneficial to buy our own home. Thank you for pointing out that it can get expensive for pet deposits and the added premiums when you own pets in apartments. This has been true for us. We will look for a realtor by the end of this week.
