  1. If you'll just be living in the house a few years or the fee is low, then renting can be a sensible option. In most cases, it's better to own a home rather than to rent as you get to pay money towards owning your own property. A home loan, however, is a long-term and substantial amount of debt so it's important that you evaluate your job stability and financial status before you decide on.
