Why Rent?

Homeownership is not for everybody. If your job isn’t stable or if you travel often, purchasing a home may not be worth the expense. And, if you have credit problems, you are living paycheck to paycheck or if you find it difficult to prove your income, it may be tough to qualify for a mortgage. If you don’t want the responsibility of home maintenance and you’re not sure of your future plans, renting may be an excellent choice.
