The Rent is Too Damn High: Why Buying a House Might Be for You


Renting an apartment can feel a bit like a financial black hole. You pour money into rent every month, and at the end of the day, you have nothing to show for it but a shoebox-sized living space and a grumpy landlord who won't let you paint your walls a fun color (like fire engine red or puke green). If you're tired of throwing away your hard-earned cash and dream of a place where you can channel your inner interior designer without getting evicted, then buying a house might be the answer for you.

But hold on a second there, champ! Buying a house is a huge decision. It's not like picking out a new pair of shoes (although that can be a pretty big decision too, especially if they're those really expensive cowboy boots you've been eyeing). There's a lot to consider, like saving for a down payment, dealing with mortgages, and all the fun joys of homeownership, like fixing a leaky faucet at 3 am (because that never happens with rentals, right?).

Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons of renting vs. buying, presented in a lighthearted way, to help you decide which path is right for you:


  • Flexibility: If you're the type of person who gets antsy and needs a change of scenery every few years, renting is a great option. You're not tied down to one place, and you can move around freely as your job, relationship status, or whim dictates.
  • Less Responsibility: Say goodbye to replacing the broken garbage disposal and hello to maintenance-free living! When something breaks in a rental property, it's the landlord's problem, not yours (unless you accidentally broke it by, say, trying to teach your pet parrot how to play the drums).
  • The Rent is Too Damn High! (Seriously, it is.) Renting can feel like throwing your money away, especially if you live in an area with skyrocketing rent prices. And forget about building equity or ever owning your own place.
  • No Control: Want to paint your living room a vibrant shade of purple? Tough luck! In most rental agreements, you're strictly limited when it comes to decorating or making changes to the property. And don't even think about adding a deck or planting a victory garden in the backyard without getting permission from the landlord (who might be a control freak with a serious aversion to tomato plants).


  • It's Yours! Buying a house gives you a sense of ownership and stability. You can paint your walls puke green if you want, and nobody can stop you (although your guests might beg you to reconsider). It's also an investment that can appreciate in value over time.
  • Building Equity: With every mortgage payment, you're chipping away at the principal of your loan and building equity in your home. This means that you'll eventually own your house outright, and you'll have something valuable to show for all those years of adulthood.
  • It's a Big Commitment: Buying a house is a long-term financial commitment. You're signing up for a mortgage that will likely last for 15 or 30 years. So make sure you're financially stable and prepared to settle down in one place for a while.
  • Upkeep and Maintenance: Owning a house means you're responsible for all the repairs and maintenance. So say goodbye to maintenance-free living and hello to clogged drains, leaky roofs, and the never-ending quest for the perfect lawnmower.
