OF OWNING YOUR OWN HOME
When you rent,
you are normally limited on what you can do to improve your home.
You have to get permission to make certain types of improvements.
Nor does it make sense to spend thousand of dollars painting, putting
in carpet, tile or window coverings when the main person who benefits
is the landlord and not you.
landlord wants to keep his expenses to a minimum, he or she will
probably not be spending much to improve the place, either.
When you own
a home, however, you can do pretty much whatever you want. You get
the benefits of any improvements you make, plus you get to live
in an environment you have created, not some faceless landlord.
