It isn’t always easy to afford housing, whether you’re planning to rent or purchase a home. To pay off the mortgage or stay on top of the rent, many Americans need to make financial sacrifices. However, the kinds of sacrifices that a buyer or renter makes can vary from person to person. For example, it’s still common for buyers or renters to borrow money from family members to purchase a home.
