Should I Buy a Home Or Not?

Jul 15, 2008
When anyone is going to either rent or buy a home, it is not a question to flip a coin over. There are many considerations to evaluate. Your finances versus the market is just one of several points to consider when looking over your determination of weather to rent, or buy.

No matter what you conisider your dream home, you still ahve the option to rent until the time is right. The choice you make will come down to financiang. This is what you can count on paying when renting, rather that purchasing a home. In a nutshell, this always will be the main determining factor between the two.

There are a lot optional points when considering buying a house. When you buy as opposed to renting, you become part of an established community. Being part of the larger consciousness is what this really means. 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.

With a rental, you do not have to be concerned about outside appearances of your abode. This is all taken care of 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 decisions are not in your hands. You are renting. The management company, or owner has made these decisions for you.

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.
