Ask many homeowners, and they just might tell you that they miss the good old days of renting. When you rent, there are so many things that you don't have to worry about including surprise maintenance expenses (or regular maintenance expenses for that matter), insurance, and home improvement work. Many homeowners' weekends are sacrificed to the house and yard, and leave little time for fun or social activities. You may want to own a home someday, but for now, enjoy the advantages of apartment living. It's pretty great.
