I talk to a lot of people about the pride of home ownership. I am obviously a firm believer in the concept. It never ceases to amaze me that throughout these discussions I still hear people claim that there is no difference in the pride you have for a home that you own and a house that you rent.
I like to ask these people a simple question. When was the last time you washed a rental car? Most people do not spend that much time making a rental car look nice, because quite frankly, it's not their car. There is no need to make it look pretty and then show it off to their friends and family.
There isn't as much pride in living in a place as there is in owning the place. That same type of pride is the reason you never hear anyone bragging about their nice new ride while washing a rental car.
