My Honey and I rent the home we live in. At one time we even had the option to buy it and had to give some thought and prayer to this option before deciding not to buy. At our age we don't want the upkeep money wise that owning a home would cost us. We would rather not have to pay taxes, insurance, maintenance bills, etc. that a home owner has to put out. We like knowing that if we wanted to move somewhere else tomorrow...we would have the freedom to do this without having to put our home up for sale, etc. We like knowing that when something breaks down, etc. all we have to do is call our Landlord and he fixes or replaces it at no cost to us. We also like knowing our Landlord doesn't mind if we paint, plant flowers or garden in our yard space, etc. He even gives us a discount on our already low rent for mowing our own yard space. Since my Honey loves working out in the yard, etc. this is a blessing too. What about you? Do you rent or own your home? And are you happy with the decision you have made?
