Sorry, in my post i was referring to jrr7's post below:

If you consider your entire rent payment to be "burnt", then when you buy a home you will be "burning" all of these:
- structural maintenance (roof, walls, floors, plumbing, wiring)
- landscaping
- leaf raking, snow shoveling, grass mowing
- repair/replacement on major appliances
- property taxes
- mortgage insurance
- mortgage interest
- the portion of insurance that corresponds to structural
- water bill
- sewer bill
- garbage bill
