Why do we need rental counseling?
Rental housing makes up a critical segment of the nation’s housing and provides homes for families and individuals unable to afford the cost of ownership or whose life circumstances simply make renting a better option.
As America rediscovers the option to rent versus own, having proactive knowledge such as understanding the terms of a lease agreement, how to calculate rent affordability and use of budgeting tools make the overall experience of renting a positive one.
