Own to Rent Status

I read with interest of a flight attendant (in her 30s and based in Canada) selling her property and opt to rent an apartment. She desires FIRE and made such decision as one of her route to reaching FIRE as soon as possible. I am of view that she made the right decision. She mentioned about her difficulties in making such decision. The society and her upbringing always instilled in her that owning real estate is the path to wealth and financial security.

The thought of her renting a room in her 30s do put a damper on her ego and make her question her competency as an adult. Her understanding her own values, following what makes her happy, and not caring other views definitely make it more comforting to take the leap. She just took action and did it immediately.
