it seems as though many on this site have all of the cool toys. i see sbr this full auto that. a huge safe with thousands of dollars in guns. is everyone rich here? a home is usually the largest purchase we make. if we rent we have more cash to spend on stuff we want. are most of us going into debt to get what we want? so my question is do you own or rent your home?

Thank you.

I had started a long rant, but then just closed the window in frustration.

You've summed it up nicely!

^^^ The only people that 'own' anything are the banks and the gov't. I pay rent to both of them (mortgage + property taxes).

Own until my local town decides they need a mall here.



Renting just gives money to someone else.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 5:38:16 AM EDT
Own. If that's possible, with a condo.

BTW my mortgage is the only debt I have.

post a poll. My wife and I own our home. (well, countrywide does)
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 5:42:00 AM EDT
I "own" a rental property in another state but rent where I currently live.

renting sucks.

The bank owns my house, but I'm working on it. 28 short years to go and it's all mine.

I own.

In my area, apples to apples, apartments and homes carry about the same monthly payment.

Some folks just have trouble coming up with the money down and other fees, I suppose.

New home owner ... still paying rent for the month of August, but after that, it's just the mortgage.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 11:43:23 AM EDT
I rent but am looking to buy. I just havent found anything yet.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 11:44:16 AM EDT
Own.

or should I say PWNED (by the bank)?


Link Posted: 8/18/2005 12:11:03 PM EDT
Own? Well not really, I have to pay the property tax and get to live there, but the bank won't let me have it for 18 more years.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 2:22:49 PM EDT

The bank still owns most of it. but we're buying it...one square foot at a time. I think we own the front porch now.

Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:25:02 PM EDT
I rent, and I'm not sure if I'll ever buy a house. I have friends and family offer to have me move in all the time, because I stay on the computer in my room all the time surfing ARFCOM.

The wife and I still rent. We have almost $10,000 saved for a down payment on a condo. I really don't want a yard.

I was a lawn maintenance landscape foreman for 12 years and I've had my fill of yard work.
