The Biggest Disadvantage to Renting- Giving Away Money!

Dated: June 28 2018

If you're a Millennial — or have a son or daughter who is a Millennial — you've probably had a discussion about renting or buying a home. It can be a hard question to answer, especially with the steadily-rising prices of houses. 


However, there are clear disadvantages to renting:

  • Someone else controls all the rules, not you
    (such as whether you can have a pet).
  • You'll see a steady increase in rent over time.
  • Zero tax advantages.
  • You have no say if your landlord wants to move into your place or sell to someone else.

The biggest disadvantage: You give away your money. Renting means you never will have the chance to build equity in a home. Instead, you give that opportunity to your landlord.
