When deciding where to live, many people tend to weigh the pros and cons of renting an apartment or owning a home. If you're a student, you have the added option of living in a dorm. With so many different living options to choose from, it can be hard to decide which is right for you. Fortunately, there's another option that offers the best of both worlds, providing the affordability of renting an apartment, the luxury of living in a home, and the convenience of student housing: renting a home! Below, Contemporary Management Concepts, LLLP shares a few of the biggest advantages of renting a house in Gainesville, FL!
Renting a house affords residents an unparalleled amount of space and privacy, especially when compared to cramped, outdated dorm rooms. When leasing one of our Gainesville homes at Eagle Point Villas, you can expect wide open living areas, full-sized kitchens with ample storage space, vaulted ceilings, patios, and even two-car garages. Moreover, living in a home grants residents the added privacy of not sharing walls with their neighbors.
Owning a home is a considerable commitment and a lot of responsibility. Should a homeowner ever decide they'd like to move, they'll have to go through the hassle of trying to sell their home first; conversely, renting a home grants residents the freedom and flexibility to adjust their living situations without having to jump through hurdles. For example, if a renter ever wants to downsize, upgrade, or move, all they need to do is wait for their lease to end.
Renting a home is a much more affordable alternative to owning a home. The downpayment and closing costs required to secure homeownership alone are enough to make one's wallet quiver in fear. Add on property taxes, mortgage payments, repair costs, HOA fees, and utilities, and it's plain to see that homeownership is quite the investment. On the other hand, renting a home means you won't have to worry about rising mortgages, making repairs, or paying property taxes. Simply put, renting a home is, by and large, a money-wise decision.
Unfortunately, dormitories and some apartment communities don't allow residents to keep pets on their premises. Our rental home communities, such as Eagle Point Villas and 88th Street Cottages, not only allow pets but provide pet walking trails where residents can get out and spend some quality time with their pups. If you're looking for housing and have pets you can't bear to part ways with, our homes in Gainesville are the perfect place for you!
