In general owning your home is better than renting it. However, there are circumstances when renting is a better option for you. For example, if you move from one location to another a lot or if you cannot come up with the financing necessary to buy your home. There are some things you ought to know about renting your home BEFORE you proceed.
The type of deal you get on a rental lease; either of a home or an apartment, depends largely on where in the world it is located. Other conditions that will affect your deal include the economy and the supply-demand ratio of renters for available properties. Another factor could be the attitude of the owner/landlord. Is he a greedy sort of person who wants to squeeze every last dime out of his tenants? Or, is he of a more generous nature and is willing to include offers such as “one month free rent with your signing of a lease with him?” Keep in mind; unless you desperately need to rent a home and have no other options, you can shop around for the right deal for you.
