Rent vs. buy — the case for flexibility“A HOUSE is made of walls and beams,” the writer and educator Dr. William A. Ward once said, “and a home is built with love and dreams.” Anybody who has ever undergone the arduous task of combining those two — that is, making a home out of a house through the act of buying one — knows that it’s much easier said than done.
