Renting a Home

The Pros and Cons of Renting a HomeEven though having a home is essentially every Indian’s ambition, rising property prices, particularly in urban areas, have caused people to favor renting over buying. On the other hand, many people who can afford to buy a home must choose between renting and buying. In India, many people think that buying a home is a better option than renting a home. It can be difficult to decide on a place to reside. You consider a lot of factors before making this choice. Probably the first is “Should I buy a house or should I rent it?” The best course of action must first be chosen before making the bold move. Although there are numerous factors to take into account before making a choice, the ability to spend money should be the primary consideration. Both renting and purchasing have benefits and drawbacks. We advise compiling a list of the benefits and drawbacks of renting a house before making your decision.

To make you understand or to help you in making your decision, we will see the pros and cons of renting a house.

Pros Of Renting A House

  • Houses for rent are better than purchasing a home if you do not plan to stay in one location for an extended period. Someone with a transferable job would be appropriate in this circumstance. As a result, renting a property offers greater flexibility than buying one.
  • Renting relieves some of the costs associated with home ownership, such as EMI fees, property taxes, and other legal concerns. Renting a house seems to entail fewer responsibilities. A 60 lakh rupee home can be rented in a metropolis for as little as 10,000 to 20000 rupees a month.
  • The benefit of renting is flexibility. Without the worry of having to sell a house or being committed to a certain place, you can easily move if your circumstances change. While it is possible to rent a home closer to one’s place of employment or a reputable school, the same homes may not be within one’s price range or budget.
  • Contrary to buying, renting necessitates a lower down payment in the form of a security deposit. This offers flexibility, especially for those just starting in their careers who wish to explore without being committed to anything too soon.

Cons Of Renting A House

  • Anytime, your landlord has the right to raise the rent.
  • Renting a house prevents you from increasing your equity. Even if it will be your house, it won’t be an asset.
  • Without the landlord’s permission, you are not allowed to make any alterations to your home or flat.
  • A “No Pets” policy is prevalent in rental homes. Therefore, if you love animals, it can be difficult to find a rental that accepts dogs.
  • You may always be kicked out by your landlord. If property values rise, they can sell the building to make a profit.
  • The guidelines and commitments in your renting agreement are binding on you.


Compared to renting, buying a house has many benefits and financial flexibility, but buying a home is a highly stressful and important decision and is typically seen as a significant life milestone. Along with home ownership, there come a lot of responsibilities, so unless you are ready, don’t take this step. For people who want to rent a house, the above post might help in understanding the pros and cons of renting a house.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

    Mr. Balaji is our family acquaintance and is known to us for several years, he is also involved in philanthropic work, It is our good fortune that we entrusted the sale of our ancestral property to Mr. Balaji and his company. Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
