Purchasing a home offers amazing financial benefits. Renting a home offers amazing financial benefits for the owner of the property you are renting from. Keep that in mind the next time you think about staying in your rental.

1. You Are Paying For A Home Regardless if You Rent or Buy

Steve Rose, owner of Williamsburg Event Rentals, and a pretty awesome friend of mine, along with Jenn and I during a wine crawl lull.

The Gallery Crawl in Williamsburg is an awesome, yearly event in which you pay for a ticket, grab the wine glass handed to you, start at Quirks of Art in High Street and start your crawl. With over twenty stops this year, it was an event not to be missed. The cool thing about the crawl is you don't have to walk anywhere except into the galleries.

Don't miss it next year!!
