MX 93 Renting

Prae / Thailand
I think it's better to won a home because if you rent a house maybe you wouldn't take good care of it as much because you know you'll move.

Tom / United States
I think I want to own my own house someday. I want to be able to change things. I want to be able to build buildings and tear them down. I want to be able to have my own house.

Paul / England
I would rather rent a house because at the moment I like to move around and live in a lot of different places, so I think if I buy a house, I would be tired and trapped in one place, so it makes more sense for me to rent.

Aki / Japan
I guess owning. I live in an apartment right now but I always have to be careful. I don't like make scratches on the floor or the walls. I have to be careful of not like making that much sounds. My parents own a house and we could do anything we want. We could even own pets, so in the future, yeah, I wanna buy my own house if I could.

Jeff / Canada
I guess the advantage of renting is that you don't have to do all the repairs yourself, but I think it's better to own your own home. You can do what you want with it. You can invest money in your house that way.

Shalini / Canada
I would rather rent right now because I would be allowed .... I'm allowed the freedom to move around and travel and not be tied down to anything. However, at some point I think I would want to own my own house so I don't have to worry. I can be secure.

Matthew / Canada
It's much better to own your own home. When we came to Japan we sold our home in Canada and we were able to get some money saved ... saved some money from that.
