Why RENT when you can OWN?

Homeowning

Have the freedom to design your own space
Invest in your future and diversify your portfolio
Save money in the long run
Build your home equity with a long-term investment
Avoid the headache of moving every year or two
Increase your credit score
Let your pets run out in the open
Get a private yard and so much more storage space

Renting

No nails, paint, or redecorating of any kind please!
Say bye to that rent check because you’re never gonna see it again
Pay more in the long run (you’re welcome landlord/lady)
Live in close proximity to your neighbors
Time to order more boxes and duct tape *sigh
No financial opportunities (I just hope I get my security deposit back)
Hide your pets and NO PARTIES
Look into private storage solutions because that closet isn’t working
