Renting an apartment through Rent Spot is a great way to gain financial stability and freedom. Not to mention, all the great bonuses that a lot of apartment communities offer now. Your monthly rent is predictable and consistent. Aside from the random statement errors or late fees, you typically don't see huge and unexpected charges on your bill without your prior knowledge. Unlike owning a home, most apartment communities offer a team of maintenance men to come to your rescue. Renting lets you be secure with a short or long-term lease while still having the freedom to change neighborhoods or cities if the circumstances call for it. For people with careers as their number one priority, apartments are the best option when relocating across Canada for a new job in cities like Kingston or Calgary. Over time, an apartment has fewer expenses beyond property maintenance. The cost of rent is often lower than a mortgage.
