Why You Should Rent a Home in 2020

By otto | January 20, 2020

Finding a place to live can be quite a tedious task. Perhaps you're looking for a small place to live in while you study for your undergrad at UTEP, or you recently got married and you're in search of a great place to start your family. No matter what your situation is, one thing is true: you need a place you can call home without breaking the bank.

El Paso is well-known for its low rent rates, especially when it comes to renting a home. This is why so many El Pasoans decide to rent a home instead of living in an apartment complex. While apartment complexes may seem convenient, they are anything but. Apartments are always too crowded and it's hard for anyone to feel like their apartment is truly their own. This is where homes for rent come into play. Keep reading to learn more about why renting a home in 2020 might just be the best decision you make this year!

Affordable Monthly Rates

The best and most obvious, benefit of renting a home in El Paso comes down to the monthly rent. All too often, apartment complexes overcharge for a small, cramped space. A rental home, on the other hand, can be well within your price range and it can include all the things you require. Perhaps you want a home with washer and dryer hookups, well then we'll help you find the right one! Or maybe you want a home with a backyard so your dog can run around all day! That's not something you can achieve in an apartment complex. If you're lucky, you might have a small balcony but that's nothing when it comes to a dog's needs.

Many rental homes include a few utilities (or all of them, if you're lucky!) in the monthly rent cost. Now, if your rental home rate doesn't come with utilities, then you might pay a bit more since homes are larger than apartment complexes, so the rates are bound to be higher. But they're not exorbitantly high. Take these rates into consideration when looking for a rental home. If a home is a bit too big but just barely within your price range, then you need to consider how much utilities will cost once it's all said and done. See this as the true monthly cost. You can come up with a close-to-accurate estimate of your utility costs by using all the available utility calculators found online. Once you have those numbers down, add that to the monthly rent and see if it's all within your budget!

No Need to Worry About Maintenance

Renting an apartment versus renting a home might be a topic you've already tossed around in your head. But when you get down to brass tacks, there isn't much that makes an apartment a better choice than a rental home. More often than not, you may be able to find a great home for rent in the same price range as an apartment. But instead of living in a crowded floorplan where you have to get used to loud upstairs neighbors and people taking your parking spot, you'll be able to rent your very own home.

Perhaps you haven't considered renting a home because you assume they're all too expensive or too difficult to maintain. Well, we're here to let you know that our rental homes combine the best of both worlds. Sure, apartment complexes are known for maintenance but how reliable is that? If you've lived in an apartment and you faced a maintenance issue, how quickly have the maintenance team come by to fix whatever's wrong? It usually takes days.
