The idea of buying a home for the family or a rental unit is a popular idea in the UK and US.
But while it can be fun, it’s a little like trying to find a nice pair of shoes for the grandkids.
For the vast majority of people, the option of renting or buying is not an option, and many of them end up renting rather than buying.
The reason is simple: if you’re renting and you want a house, you’re better off just getting a new one.
“We have a really good housing market, so I’m more comfortable in renting than buying,” says Helen, who is 25.
She’s renting for the time being.
But Helen says she’s not sure she wants to leave her house and start living in it.
“It’s a very hard decision for me because I want to live with my family,” she says.
“But I also don’t want to sell it because I’m scared that my kids will lose the money I saved for it.”
That’s where Helen’s advice comes in.
She suggests looking for a rental deal that matches your current lifestyle.
Helen is currently living in a £200,000 house in a quiet part of the country.
It’s near the seaside, but it’s not exactly in the heart of it.
She says it’s close enough to the city to work, but she says she can’t go anywhere without her family and friends there to keep her company.
She wants to buy, but is unsure about whether she can afford to.
Helen, whose parents are retired, says she is still in debt, and says she would like to sell her house.
“I have no choice.
I’m not getting the money to buy it and I’ve never had the money for it to be worth anything,” she said.
But there are other reasons not to buy.
“You may have to sell your house if you can’t afford to buy one,” says Liz, who’s 24 and lives in a council house.
She is also renting for now.
“If I’m getting a job and I’m looking for somewhere to live, I’m going to do it.”
Liz says she has been in her current home for just under a year and says there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
“For me it’s about keeping it the way it is,” she explains.
She has a garden shed with a composting toilet, a compost bin and a large yard for her plants.
Liz says her family has also been very supportive, and she feels lucky to be able to afford to live in such a comfortable house.
Liz’s mum, who works in a restaurant, says it is a great house.
Her parents are also in the restaurant, and her younger brother and sister are studying.
But they have a lot of questions about renting.
“What are the terms?
I don’t know,” she told the BBC.
“They’re just so vague.”
Renting is cheaper than buying In some countries, it is cheaper to rent than buy.
But it’s still better than buying in many cases.
“There’s a huge difference between buying and renting,” says Jane, from South Africa.
“So if you want to buy your first property, it will be a lot more expensive, but if you look at it that way, it makes sense.”
For Jane, the main reason for renting is that she doesn’t want a mortgage.
“My husband and I are really happy with our first home and it’s nice to have a home that you can move in and out of,” she explained.
“In a country like South Africa where rents are high, I feel like it’s better to have the money than to have an expensive house.”
In New Zealand, the rental market is even more competitive, but you can still get a better deal.
In New Plymouth, New Zealand’s capital, renting is free.
For rent, you can apply online, at a property office or online.
In the past few years, the average price has gone up from $1,500 a month to $2,000.
In most parts of the world, renting for less than $3,000 a month can be cheaper than purchasing a home.
Renting for less In some cases, renting can be more affordable than buying a house.
In many countries, buying a property is a major financial commitment, but renting a home can be a more affordable way of getting started.
“When you rent, it helps you save money for a down payment and a downpayment can be used for a deposit for your down payment,” says Richard, from London.
Rent is free in many parts of New Zealand.
For instance, in New Plymouth there is no charge for rent.
Rent in many countries can be even cheaper than owning a house “I think it’s the perfect price for people who are starting out, who are in a transitional period, and who are looking for something that they’re excited
