A rental house offers flexibility

Your family situation will change throughout your life. Renting makes it possible to match the size of your home to your lifestyle and financial situation. Maybe it’s just you and your significant other at the moment sharing a charming downtown apartment. But there’s a chance that at some point in time, a third family member will show-up and suddenly that 1 bedroom apartment you were so happy with will become too small. You will realize that you’d much rather prefer the comfort of your own backyard, than all the excitement your current neighborhood provides, that you no longer have time to enjoy anyway. If you want to continue living comfortably, you may want to rent a 2 bedroom house. Or maybe your oldest son turned into a young man who’s going off to college soon. You’ll find yourself in a 4 bedroom house that is suddenly too big. You could downsize and rent a 3 bedroom home with a pool, in a much nicer area. The flexibility of renting makes it possible.
