Maintenance. I hate maintaining my home. I wish I had not bought my home and just rented a nice place instead. That way, someone else would be responsible for the maintenance.
2008: The fall of the housing market. In 2007 I had equity in my home. Meaning my home was worth more than what I owed on the mortgage. After the disastrous fall of the housing market that started in 2008, my home was worth less than what I owed.
These are my two biggest reasons to support renting vs. buying a home.
