I am here to give my opinion of why I think that renting an apartment is a better option than buying a home. I will give facts to my audience that will help support my opinion. With the information that I provide my goal is to persuade my readers to my way of thinking.

Many fees are associated with owning a home, such as possessing the money to pay for any maintenance fees and repairs. As a renter I do not have to worry about any of these costs. If something happens to break or a problem needs to be taken care of, I can simply call my landlord and it will be their responsibility to correct the problem or fix the situation.

As a renter, if I decide that I no longer wish to reside at my residence, I can simply give my landlord a notice. After I have given my notice to leave, I can simply pack up and move somewhere else. When purchasing one’s own home, it is not that simple. If they wish to move they must put their house on the market, and wait for someone to buy it. Being a renter allows me to have flexibility in my life. I am not required to stay in one place for an extended period.
