School taught human basic needs, and we learned three essential and basics to live: Clothing, food & shelter. Beyond that maybe we can tell lavishness or capacity to afford by many. Clothing is surely a basic necessity as it protects us from harm and weather.

- HOME OR HOUSE? RENT OR OWN?
Whatever terms you call it, it is the place to keep us safe from harm outside our own or rented place. There as so many arguments about which is better to own or to rent. Many of us working so so hard to own one. Many students after graduation exclaimed that they will work hard, go over time, find part-time and make more money, save money and buy a house.
Most of the progressive countries offer extensive development on real estate. Flexible payment terms like rent to own wherever offered. Many people are tempted and without studying on the pros and cons many are a trap. If you are still on the stage of planning buying a house sit and write numbers. How much are the monthly amortizations, insurance, and money matters involve? Then laid all your cards, your current expenses, where you can cut expenses and add the budget to the monthly payments of the property you wanted to acquired. After you go on numbers and you found that you currently have enough, but ask yourself until when I can keep my job or until when my job can keep me? On the realistic side you have to be broad, consider every detail aspect in your life. The scenario would vary if you are single with no obligation to your family, single but breadwinner, planning to marry, just married, have one child or more and so forth. Or maybe you have existing loans etcetera.
Only after knowing your capacity, then you decide. What if you are currently renting? Like if we are only expatriates or working abroad majority, we are only renting apartments, houses or villas!
The benefits of wise spending would undoubtedly save us from unnecessary spending. We could allocate the save funds for insurance, medical emergency, future retirement funds, help charity & more. As many say "money is not the root of happiness", but while you use it towards things or activities then feel you happy you would find joy in giving 🙂
