Could one of these fears be stopping you from creating new, rewarding memories in a home you can truly call your own? If so, you might be forfeiting more than you think.

Home is an incubator of great memories

Memories color your life with emotion. Memories serve as signposts to your most endearing and life changing experiences. They get you through the toughest times. When you recall your sweetest memories, you might discover that many of them were created inside a home.

Picture it;hot apple cider, festive music and gifts beneath the Christmas tree as you and your family dine and laugh at your grandparents' house during winter. Summer barbecues shared with 30 of your closest relatives and friends at your parents', the house spacious enough to easily accommodate all guests.

Fears that hold you back

You appreciate having a place to create loving memories year after year. Over the last several years, you've been thinking about buying a house of your own. But, you keep putting buying a house off. Despite your desire to own your own place, these fears could halt your progress.

Lack of finances - Do you keep telling yourself that you don't have enough money to buy a house? Do you imagine yourself getting laid off and being unable to keep up your mortgage payments, all this before you buy even a small, affordable house? See if you also worry that you won't be able to afford a new car, to start a business, invest in an improved wardrobe or move into a better apartment. If so, you could be afraid that you'll never have enough money to do what you really want to do. 

Weak DIY skills - Maintenance skills aren't required to own a home. Lenders don't ask borrowers if they have plumbing, electrical, roofing or construction experience. But, that doesn't stop you from trying to figure out what could go wrong with any house that you want. Every time you think about it, you imagine something breaking at the house that you can't afford to fix.

Security guarantee - Living in a house alone scares you. It's reached the point where sundown triggers fears of being victim of a home invasion. There aren't enough locks and alarms in the world to pacify your fears. You demand a written guarantee from the universe that affirms that your house will never, ever get robbed.

Unknown future - Change, including the birth of more children, a breakup or a new job, scare you. You need to know that you'll be prepared to meet any impending change without having to move again. For you, a starter home won't do. You're seeking permanence.

You're right. Owning a home is about more than finding a house that meets your family's dwelling needs. Owning a home is about more than paying a mortgage. There are maintenance and repairs to be made. If your family expands, you may have to add on a room. There will be a lot of changes from the moment you move in.

Many of these changes will involve family and friends, people who you'll create endearing memories with. When that happens, your home will be more than a residence. It will be a centerpiece of some of your life's greatest memories. If you truly want to own a home, don't let fears block you from enjoying these experiences.

Renting a house is a stress free way to really find out how much you like a property. When you rent a house, you can find out how well you gel with neighbors. You can also discover how much your spouse or children like the home.

Renting a house offers unique safeguards

There are other advantages to renting versus buying a house. Above all, you won't have to take on ongoing debt that's inherent in a mortgage to learn:

  • That bedroom and bathroom layouts are not conducive to your children's school or sports preparation activities
  • Neighborhood pets are too aggressive for you to be comfortable letting your young children play outside without you constantly being right by their side. If it's not your neighbors' pets, it's stray dogs and cats that you're concerned about.
  • Noise coming from your neighbors' homes keeps you up at night even if you shut your windows
  • The master bedroom at the house is too close to a street light, causing you to struggle to get and stay asleep
  • Trash pickup is a headache. Despite how many times you call the local garbage company, large boxes and bags of trash remain at the edge of your front walkway or alley for one to two days longer than they should
  • Traffic on the street is too busy or moves too quickly for your comfort, even if you live alone
  • Entertainment, restaurants and shops are too faraway
  • It takes you too long to commute to and from work, even if you take public transportation

When one or more of these situations occurs, it might be best to vacate the property at the end of your rental agreement. In most cases, you'd have nothing to lose after you vacate the rental home.

House renting and buying come with unique pros and cons

You could even rent two to three house for six months before you decide on a house to buy. Renting two or more houses could make it more clear to you which specific amenities you want. For example, you might learn that having a separate bathroom for each of your children is important.

Other things that you might learn from renting two or more houses are that you want to be within five or fewer miles of a reliable form of public transportation and that you don't want to live close to a school. Living in a community that's growing,an area that's bringing in more companies, might also be key for you.

After you rent a house, you might be surprised to learn that you don't want to live close to neighbors. Having a finished basement, covered parking or two car garage might turn into "must haves" as well. Had you not rented a house, you might have convinced yourself that you could enjoy living in a house without these amenities, and mistakenly bought a house that you would never be happy with.

The chance to step away from a lease agreement within a year or less is a benefit that you generally won't get if you buy a house. This single lack of certainty keep some people renting instead of trusting that they could love living in the same house for years. After all, despite the number of times that you walk through a house, it's not the same as actually living at a property.
