We need to stop saying this. Seriously. And for a number of reasons.
1. There are plenty of people who can’t afford to buy. Stop making them feel bad.
2. For some people (🙋🏼‍♀️), renting is a choice. It’s a service you pay for, like getting a house cleaned, getting your pet groomed or hiring a personal assistant.
3. In some areas, renting is the better choice financially, long term. Don’t at me 🤣. Just do the research.
4. Renting gives you flexibility. You can pick up and move whenever you’d like.
5. Some people have no desire to spend time on home maintenance.
So there you have it. And you now probably know where I stand 😂. I’m not saying I’ll never own again (we owned our home in Halifax). But for right now, we’d rather spend the majority of our time at the beach, traveling, etc: not doing all the stuff home ownership can involve. Owning a home isn’t a priority to us. So how about you? Weigh in on the rent vs. buy debate! Do you think we’re crazy for not wanting to buy? 🤪
