One of my favorite new websites is called Mint.com. Basically it is a financial website that allows you to manage your money, but it also has this amazing blog. I have now vowed to never rent if can avoid it. I have been there, done that and found it that the outcome was less than desirable especially compared to that of living in a Tiny House.
The bloggers over at Mint have put out an interesting article about renting, they propose that they are in fact better off renting. The big assertion they make is that if you are modest renter, who can manage your budget, that it is actually better at building equity. By paying less than a mortgage, saving the difference and not assuming the risks, you can do better.
