Resources >> Buying VS Renting

NOTICE: To All Renters - Fire your landlord!

What's the difference between renting and throwing away your money? Nothing.

You need to pay to live somewhere, right. Why spend a big chunk of your pay check every month to build your landlord's equity instead of your own? Believe it. Owning can be as affordable as renting. Then isn't it only logical to invest in yourself, rather than making some landlord rich?

Let's look at a comparison of owning vs. renting, and we will let you be the judge.

  • More storage space
  • Room to grow
  • Your own back yard
  • Safe neighbourhood living

  • Free to change decor
  • Not dependent on landlord maintained

Renting
  • Short term waste of money
  • Inadequate storage space
  • Room to grow? Not so much
  • Backyard? Depends where you live

  • The colours they have is what you get
  • Limited choice of floor plans

  • Landlords equity
