IS YOUR HOUSE TRYING TO KILL YOU?

So many people after investing in real estate, end up asking themselves one question: "What Kind of house did I invest in?" that is definitely a question of regret. Nobody wants to invest in real estate and then starts spending even more money to renovate it year in year out.

There is no doubt that buying a house is one of the best investments on earth. But it can also be the worst if you don't invest in the right house.
Here are some things you need to check before investing in that house:

RENTING VS BUYING A HOME
 "To rent or to buy a home" This is one decision many people struggle with. While some people may not have a choice but to rent a home because of the financial commitment involved, others that have the finances do struggle with the decision to either keep renting or to just buy their own home.

While renting may look easier and cheaper than buying a home, renting actually happens to be more expensive. Renting is you working for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week just to pay your landlord. His money is working for him because he invested in real estate, while you keep working for money to pay him.
 Here are some reasons why buying that home today is the best decision.

1) Investment: Unlike a car or other purchases that decrease in value, a house is a purchase that appreciates over time. As time goes by the value of your house continues to rise. A house that was sold for 10 million in 2017 is now selling for 20 million in 2019. This tells you how the value of …
