For years we have heard the old adage, “Renting is just throwing money away!” Is it though? Times are different now, and it’s not that same as it was years ago. This is the school of thought my dad had expressed to me while growing up. As I’ve grown older, I now feel that lifestyle design can help create the life you love, doing the things you want, and that might include renting. In this episode, April and I talk about some of the advantages of renting as well as look at the real costs of maintaining a home. Thank you so much for listening, and please leave a review on Apple Podcasts!
We’d love to hear your feedback. Do you think renting is throwing money away? Do you think that the “American Dream” of buying a home is an antiquated idea? Let us know your thoughts!
We’ve included a Rent vs. Buy Calculator tool from Nerd Wallet below, check it out.
