The Question Is Whether To Buy Or Not To Buy

Jul 12, 2008
It is not a matter of flipping a coin when deciding whether to buy or rent a home. There are a lot of things to think about. Make sure you compare your income against the local market when you make your housing decision.

Whatever the dream home being considered, there is always present the option to keep renting until a later time in the future. What is considered between these two options always distills down to financing. What can be expected to pay buying a home instead of renting? In a nutshell, this always will be the main determining factor between the two.

There are several optional points when considering buying a house. Buying a house will put you into a more permanent community, than a rented complex. This essentially means that you are a part of the larger consciousness. Communities are collectives.

It isn't easy living up to such a high standard of owning a home, especially in a neighborhood full of other people who own homes as well. It is assumed that you will maintain your yard according to neighborhood standards by keeping the lawn mowed and the landscaping freshly cut and sculpted. In your new house, you won't have to abide by anyone else's rules. Your neighbors will expect you to follow the community rules. In other words, you will either have to maintain things on your own, or have to pay someone to contract it for you.

This ideal does leave you a lot of freedom to landscape and plant almost anything you desire. You are encouraged to express your personal tastes. You are free to be an artist in the neighborhood gallery. As long as you are not an abstract artist that loves to copy Jackson Pollack's masterpieces, you are safe. Conformity standards are more of a higher priority than a rented community.

You don't have to worry about the outside appearance of your house if you rent. All of these things are already done for you. In fact, you probably do not have a choice in this matter. Often times, you do not have a choice of the inside colors of your rooms either. These choices are beyond your control. You are now a renter. These decisions have already been made for you either by the managing company or the owner.

You will be required to pay both the first and last month's rent as a deposit to guarantee your home. In most cases, you sign a lease to stay for a determined amount of time, move in and leave the rest to the owners. By the rules of the agreed lease, they will have to provide you with maintenance. The company or landlord will take care of all repairs on the garbage disposal or the toilet if you are a home or apartment renter.

Owning a home requires the owner to be responsible for maintenance and upkeep. You won't be responsible for the upkeep in you rent a home. The homeowner assumes the responsibilities that come with owning a home.

Home ownership provides stablility. The home is yours. You invest the effort and you get the return for your investment. You feel a real sense of ownership when you own your own home. Your domain is truly your own. With renting, this feeling and security is at best a temporary fix, a band-aid on a temporary situation that, ultimately, you have no real control over. The rent can go up, then you have to pay it, or move out. You can also become evicted. As a renter, these decisions are no yours to make.
