If you are thinking of renting a home instead of buying, fear not because you are not alone. Renting a home is not something that is meant for young adults alone. In the actual sense, about one third of American Citizens currently rent a home. Just as the category of renters range from couples/ families to empty nesters, the type of property available for rent vary greatly.
There are high-rise apartments which have the advantage of having maintenance issues handled by a professional management company but the disadvantage of not having a yard or a garage. Another type of home available for rent is a townhouse. This type of home offers more room, more privacy and also has a yard but one of the major disadvantages is that maintenance may be a bit iffy and the rent of such houses are usually very costly.
Some people like to go for accessory units in a single family home. These types of homes are less costly but the laundry facilities and the yard space are most likely to be shared with the homeowner which limits your privacy to your room alone. Another choice of home that can be rented most especially for couples with children is a single family home. It comes with a yard space and gives you your privacy but it is always very expensive too. Another option is the executive level home which is becoming popular on a daily basis.
Now I know you are confused because there are lots of choices available and so selecting which home to rent may be tasking. However, the following tips will help you prune your choices down and help you to select a rental that's best for you.
