I’ve been a renter for so long that I think I’ve gotten used to the idea of renting; I even enjoy the occasional break for a quick bite to eat. Yet, I’ve been surprised by just how little I actually enjoy the process anymore.
I used to always feel that I was renting for a reason. I rented out as a way to earn back some of my money at a time when I wasn’t earning any. Now I just feel like renting is a crutch, an excuse to not buy anything. If I don’t want something to be fixed, I just rent it out. Its not a good thing to be the one who lives off rent, because I get less than I pay for it.
I’ve found that I don’t like it at all. I’ve rented things that were not really worth it (i.e. my bike), and I’ve made choices that were not really my own (i.e. buying a plane ticket to Paris). I’m a very passive person, and renting helps me to be more like that, but I really don’t like it.
I find that renting is an extreme case of the “I’m lazy, I’m lazy, I don’t need anything” mentality. I know it’s a good way to save money, but I think it leads us to do the bare minimum and give up on the process.
I think the point is that renting is the same as borrowing. You have to pay the rent, but if you don’t want to, you can always get a cheaper one. But renting can be a great way to save money, but not a great way to be more like the type of person who would go out and find a better deal.
This is a problem that occurs in many areas of our lives, not just in renting. The fact is that renting often makes it difficult to save money because we give up the opportunity to look for a better rate. This is why we typically save money by letting someone else rent our property. As a result, our rental properties are usually larger than they need to be and are likely to be more expensive than they need to be.
This is another factor that makes it challenging to save more money by renting. Because in order to rent (or purchase) a home, you often either have to buy it from the seller and hope that the seller has the money to keep it in the same condition it was when it was purchased, or you have to sell it to someone else and hope the money they collect from the sale will allow them to keep the property in the same condition it was in when it was sold.
The fact is, if you don’t have the money to buy or rent a home, you can’t really save money by renting. You need to be able to afford the place you’re renting. So the cost of a home or the amount of money you can save by renting it is much cheaper than the cost of purchasing this home. But if you can’t afford to buy this home, you have to rent it out.
We all know the struggle in owning a home. It is not like you can go out and buy a house for $500,000 and rent it out for $250 a month. No, the struggle is in the rent. A $30,000 home is going to cost you anywhere between $125 and $175 a month to rent. And if you dont have the money to purchase a home, you probably don’t have the money to rent it out.
The good news is that you can save a great deal of money by renting out your home. By renting, you are not only saving money when you buy a home, but in addition you also save the hassle of not having a place to live.
