There are many benefits to renting that are often overlooked or not discussed in our society.  Some key benefits include:

  • Renters have more flexibility to move from one location to another because they do not have a mortgage.
  • Living in an apartment building is itself eco-friendly because the amount of land used per apartment is significantly less than for a house.
  • It is cheaper to live in an apartment because you do not have to pay for new appliances and maintenance.
  • ... and if you invest the money you save living in an apartment you could potentially have more money than if you had invested in a house.
  • The time you save not having to do maintenance, mowing or shoveling is priceless because it lets you work more, or play more, or be with friends and family more.
