Odd. I see it the other way around. I have many of the advantages of a
homeowner (able to paint my walls, not worry about driving nails into them,
add built-ins, purchase the flooring, appliances, etc., that I want),
without the disadvantages of having to maintain the outside of my building
(when we had a big windstorm a few years ago, I did have to chip my monetary
share in, but otherwise the new roof just appeared sort of like magic
because the management company dealt with it), mow the lawn, etc. I do
garden, but I have the privilege of only gardening as much as I want to and
the rest is maintained for me.
