There are both positives and negatives to buying and renting a home. I have both rented a home and now I live in one that I bought. The big positive of owning is that it is YOUR home, and you can do whatever you want with it (well, that depends if you are in an HOA or not). The big negative is that maintenance and repairs are entirely up to you, which can really make renting a home more appealing. Watch the video below to hear more.
