Homeownership is a Responsibility

Guest Author - Rose Mary

We have all heard it before. The dream of homeownership, everyone wants to own a home. This is both good and bad depending on the person. Homeownership needs to be taken seriously by anyone who thinks about it or is already a homeowner. Since homeownership is a responsibility, there is a lot involved that may not come to mind when deciding on renting or buying.

When owning a home, there are many things that need to be done. Usually these things are not done just once either. They are normally repetitive year and year or even worse, more often. The biggest drawback to homeownership is the maintenance that is required in order to keep the home in the best working order. Maintenance involves a lot of time and effort, it is not just cleaning. There is a roof that can become very expensive if it is not maintained. There is the exterior of the home that must be maintained. Usually, there is a front yard and a back yard that needs constant maintenance and upkeep. Bathrooms and kitchens need maintenance, both which may require plumbing. There are appliances to keep in good working order and flooring that must be kept up or replaced. Heating, air conditioning and hot water systems must be maintained in order to work at peak performance and efficiently.

These are just some of the things that are not readily on everyone's mind when they are thinking of purchasing a home. There is a constant upkeep with a home that is not as expansive as when renting since many of these items are taken care of by a landlord when renting. Much more time and money must be devoted when owning a home as compared to renting a property for living in.

This is clearly why some people think more than twice before purchasing a home. The expense and time that is involved in homeownership is more than many people can devote to this chore. It is something that needs to be considered carefully before purchasing a home since it is better to be safe than sorry. There is nothing wrong with no owning a home. In fact, more people return to renting as they get older because of these issues.
