Before you can sign a rental contract and move into a house, your landlord must first approve your rental application. At a minimum, you'll need to provide pay stubs along with your rental application. Depending on your landlord's policies, you may also need to bring your W-2 and bank statements.Should you buy a home or keep renting?
When you rent, you own nothing-the money goes to someone else. So lots of people argue that you should buy a home because one day you'll pay it off and it'll be yours, rather than continuing to pay rent for the rest of your life. This argument touches on opportunity cost: the value of an option you're giving up to choose something else.
