Top 5 Things You Miss Out On When Renting

Top 5 Things You Miss Out On When Renting

Are you currently renting? Here are the top 5 things you’re missing out on while you are renting.


1. Pets – dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, rabbits (the list continues…)

It’s long been scientifically proven that pets boost our happiness. What makes a home, a real home is animals. Whether it be pet fish, birds, a cat, dog, rabbit or even a reptile – there’s something about having a pet that makes your house a home.

2. Your independent space

There comes a point where you may feel overwhelmed dealing with not only housemates but the landlord too. With renting, you don’t really get independent space. Sure you can escape to your bedroom, but wouldn’t it be better to have the whole house and backyard to yourself?

3. A bigger, spacious backyard

Outdoor space is minimal in rentals. Rental backyards are often small, and when it comes to fitting in a number of housemates, you may not get the privacy you seek when it comes to sun baking outside for example.

4. An up to date modern kitchen

Rental kitchens usually leave something (style, space, a place for the cutting board) to be desired.  Not only that, but they are often outdated, with appliances that are especially old.

5. Interior design freedom

Depending on your landlord, paint could be out of the question, as well as even removable decal stickers (which is often recommended as a damage-free alternative). You may also likely have restrictions when it comes to changing window curtains or re-arranging the layout of the couch.
