To Rent or To Buy
Allow me to share with you my own experience of rented versus my own home. I bought my own home 7 years ago after living in rented accommodation and changing 4 houses before buying my own. The mental make-up of a person in a rented house undergoes a change after owning a home. In a rented home, I was tolerant, or worse, careless and lazy about the conditions of the house. It’s leaking taps, wearing paint on the walls, loose hinges of the kitchen cabinets, etc. These things somehow were not my priority but I would wear good clothes and focus on the external display.
