Renting versus owning
It’s not as hard as you think to get on the property ladder – and for many people it is a life-changing experience. Are you ready?
It’s probably the biggest purchase you’ve ever considered making, but buying a home doesn’t need to be as daunting as you might think.
Swapping renting for owning, or finally moving out of the family home, comes with its challenges, but it’s worth every bit of scrimping, saving and stressing when you finally open that door to your own property. No rent rises, no unscrupulous landlords, no more having to tell your parents where you’re going.
On the other hand, you may have to start doing your own laundry. (Swings and roundabouts.)
So here are some crucial considerations – and while there might be a few obstacles to overcome, the result could be the most exciting move you’ve ever made.
