 If there is something we can all agree upon is the fact that renting is not good. Of course, the people who are living out their lives happily renting a house or apartment might disagree. Of course, this might just be a case of not having anything to compare their lives to. 

 That is, if you have never owned a home before and all you have ever done is rent, then renting might not seem so bad. It might also be the situation you are in. For example, if you have an awesome landlord renting you an awesome house at an awesome rate, then life is probably pretty good. 

 Until your landlord decides to sell the house you are renting or is forced to jack up your rent, then suddenly your feelings about renting changes. 

 That is not to say that it what will happen to you, but as a renter, you are at the mercy of your landlord and other forces. Which is one of the reasons why owning a home is better than renting. As a matter of fact, there are several reasons why owning is better than renting and All City Real Estate and your real estate agent in Killeen are here to give you a few of them. 

 No Stability 

 When you own a house, it’s yours and you can stay there as long as you choose. It is the place you will raise children, make friends with neighbors and always have a permanent mailing address. The home you own will become the place your roots travel deep. 

 When you rent, you are at the mercy of the landlord and can be asked at any time to leave. 

 No Need to Ask Permission 

 If you rent, there is a list of things you can't really do until you ask for permission. For example, you may have to seek your landlord’s permission before you can get a dog or any pet for that matter. 

 When you rent, you have to be cleared before you can paint the dining room the color you desire. You even worry a bit when you put a nail in the wall to hang a family portrait because you didn't ask first. 

 When you own a home, you don’t have to ask anybody for anything. Scratch that; you had better check with the spouse before you paint the bedroom your favorite color, midnight blue. 

 It Will Never Be Yours 

 When you rent, all you do is pay, pay pay. And at the end, you will have nothing to show for it. 

Over the years, your pay might increase, but that is often sucked up by increases in your rent. This makes it harder and harder to save money for a down payment on a home or buy the things you desire. 

 If you get a good loan at a fixed interest rate, you can expect to make the same monthly mortgage payments 10 or 15 years from now as you do today. This means that when you do get a raise at work, you are actually making more money.
