Maintenance isn’t on you
This goes beyond just carpet cleaning and changing light bulbs. If something more costly, like a leaky roof or drainage has backed up, then the cost isn’t on you. It’s on the landlord.
Can save you money because it's cheaper month to month
Not owning property means you’re not paying property tax. Not only can rent be cheaper than a monthly mortgage, but a rent controlled property provides a predictable monthly cost.
Not anchored down
Simply put, you can move. Once a lease is up, you can stay, find a new place in the same area, or find an entirely different location. Also, this is a great way to learn about an area should you choose to buy later on.
