Considerations for Renting a Home

Will you be going on a vacation in the near future? Are you looking for a location where you can relax and enjoy the warm weather during the summer? If this is the case, there are certainly many places you can choose from. You need to take a variety of things into consideration before you make your final decision. Do you want to rent a home while you are on vacation? You should not commit to spend any money on a rental home until you are absolutely certain that it is up to your standards. Here are the major details you will need to give some serious thought to prior to renting a home.

1. How big of a house do you need?

You do not want to waste your money renting a home that is much bigger than you will actually need. How many people will be coming with you on vacation. Having your spouse and several children with you means that more rooms will be required. However, just two people will be able to get by with just a simple cabin or a similar type of house. You do not want to rent a home that is too small. This will make you feel too cramped during your vacation. Therefore, it will be much harder for you to relax. Take a look at some of the many North Carolina coast rentals online to see if they have any homes that meet your size requirements.

2. What features do you want your rental home to have?

Another detail that you must not forget about involves the features that your home will have. Do you want to have a hot tub? What about a tennis court or a swimming pool? Talk to the rental company and see if they can find a home with the features you are looking for.

3. How long will you be renting the home?

You will need to think about your budget. How much money do you have to spend on a rental home? Make sure you know what you can afford to spend before locking yourself into a rental.

Do I Really Have To Regret?

I have assumed this house 3 years ago and I know that I paid more than of the worth of the house. I regret sometimes because aside from the payment I made for this house, I am still paying for this monthly in Pag Ibig. But I don’t like to regret because I know if this will be extended, this would look amazing. Anyway, the most important thing is that this house belong to us already and no one will be able to take it away from us. If in case there is something to happen, definitely my kids will be the one to take over the house. But sometimes I can\t help to think what if instead of assuming this house, I took another house in a newly built subdivision. Some people said that I could get like a newly built house with the same amount I paid.  It could have been easy for me, it may not be hard to pay it off. On the other hand, it has been like 3 years already, I already assumed the house so it is already too late for me to regret. I just have to save more to get an extension for this house, I know for sure I will be able to accomplish it.

I Am Saving

I can’t help but smile when I check my latest savings now, it’s not yet enough for the renovation, it not much either but I am happy because it’s increasing. This will be my project this year to come up with such amount so I can afford to put an extension. But first thing first I need to take good care of our door too, the door in the living room is damaged already, there were already holes anywhere so it really has to be replaced. I just can’t right now because I have things to be prioritize first like the washing machine, Faith’s recital and all that stuffs. I hope to get over these expenses sooner so I can move forward with all of my projects for this house. Lord please help me.

The Dream Of Getting A House Of My Own

I don’t know about you but when I was still young, I want to own a house. When my sister decided to loan a house through SSS, it was the time that I can feel the privacy, I don’t have to be scared to get kicked anytime, you see we were always moving in every now and then. We moved in to the house that my sister loan when I was about to be in college. That time I thought the subdivision we moved in is the farthest but now it is becoming one of the nearest. I moved out from that house when Mj was 5 years old. I got a fight with my sister, so even if I partly owned the house I just let her be and rented a house together .with my other sister.

We stayed there for a year until I decided to loan a house through Pag-Ibig. I was working in a pioneering call center that time. I decided to loan a house because of the thought that if it will be my name on it, no one will be able to steal it from me. But few years after, since my kids are growing up, it was hard already to live with a sister together with her family. We can’t avoid getting a fight because of the kids. So I thought to rent a house in the same village.

I didn’t try to own a house after we moved out from my house because I thought that we will be joining my husband in the US but since it looks like that it is impossible for us even if it was hard for us in terms of financing, I grabbed the opportunity to assume this house. For one year, our life was tested because of what we owe to the owner of this house and I need to think very quick of I needed to do to save everything until I paid him off. Thank GOD!

In one year of struggle, we were not able to do some repairs of course we need to save for the house. I need to pay the owner pretty quick and we needed a huge amount of money. I was relieved when we paid him off, first thing first I did was to repair the floor tiles, last year I was able to have the sink repaired and we were able to modify the counter to cabinets and I was able to put doors for our closet. Now, I got a huge plan and that is to put an extension and a master’s bedroom. I am saving for it; I hope to do it next year or at least before my husband will go back here. I hope to do it really soon.
