Why rent a house? One of the reasons is privacy. You don't share walls and floors and noise with neighbors. Your comings and goings and their comings and goings do not intersect. While living in a house surrounded by a big yard and mature trees, you revel in the spaciousness, charm and uniqueness; you love the layout, and the higher ceiling; really, it's where the nostalgia of yesteryear becomes an actual taste of the past. And if you like to grow things, like your own vegetables, a house is where you surely can. Living in a house gets you closer to feeling at home. Compared with living in an apartment, living in a house is truly a different experience.
