one of my first awakening thoughts was why are we paying rent. the house is built, materials already handled and paid for. i get paid say 600 a week, which is misleading if my rent was 250 a week because that amount is automatically deducted giving me 350 weekly pay of which I'll need to pay bills to keep essentials running (water,gas,car) so that will deduct almost 1/3 to 1/2 of that,, in fact something will come along to claim any savings i happen to rollover to the following weeks.
so how happy would we be to admit that our 600 a week jobs are really 150 a week jobs

People pay rent because 1. the house belongs to the landlord, and they are possibly paying off its mortgage, or the mortgage of their own home, and 2. The landlord pays the rates on the house, not the renter, and any major repairs must also be covered by the landlord, not the renter.

i dont understand mortgages either, especially the interest/profit on it. so rates(isnt that water, elec?) and possible repairs(bond?) is why im paying 150-300 a weeks rent. why do house properties go up and down in price more than rates or damage statistics
