Renting is not a good investment.............you dump your money into something and get nothing for it. We just stopped renting and bought a house, so much better!!!! Able to save more money too.

Owning is better than renting, especially in light of the US tax system. I'm not familiar with Canada's tax system.

Renting may be better is you expect property values to be stagnant or go down - especially if you can increase savings.

for the most part

owning is the way to go rather than renting..why throw money away..if you are spending it might as well be on an investment where there is some return..totally true couldnt agree with you more..but when you have a major life change..and you have a lot of decisions to weigh, I am not sure why you would want to hunker down, and make another huge life decision..when you dont even know where you want to be in a years time...if the plan is to stay where you are....that that is where you are happy and want to settle into then fine..owning is definitely the way to go..just seems like a lot of sudden changes..and no real grounding just yet...

so just think before you leap is all Im saying...

but either way...you'll be able to make popcorn and watch Gone with the Wind in pajamas and slippers..so both work for me...

What got me about renting is you couldnt' do anything about the place you lived in....if you hated your white walls too bad, you couldnt' paint them. If you hate the carpet...too bad, most places you cannot have pets, it sucked.

Here it is illegal to not let you have pets in a rental unit, and I think you can paint if you want to pay for it yourself. Most places paint it white in between.

I just saw a place for rent that had a HUGE sunlit indoor swimming pool, and the place itself was immaculate (and on the 30th floor with a balcony) but it was FULL of senior citizens!! I felt like I was in an old folks home. It was almost across the street from where I work though. The other problem was the living room wall was mirrored! That is just too cheesy for me. But that pool....

The mortgates on the condos are very reasonable, it's the FEES that kill me. If I do buy a condo, I am hoping that I will buy in such a desirable area that it would resell easily in a year if I needed to.....but I'm still weighing all the options.

I really want to get this over with though, I want to stop stressing about it.

BTW, sorry about the misleading title!

I'm not much good at decisions either. I would hate to be in your shoes right now.
I am so impressed with how smoothly your seperation has gone. Props to Mr Edge. I can't help think of my friend SD, when I read your posts. She was totally ripped off by her ex. She was with him for 20+ years, raised their two children to successful adulthood,then he ran of with a 20 year old music pupil of his and HE ended up keeping both their beautiful properties. She got screwed...big time....imho. She's heartbroken...thank goodness for the buddhist community.( I had to get that off my chest, he's a colleague of my hub's and I just about get an ulcer when I see him.)
Anyway to rent or not to rent?...get some advice from someone informed and trustworthy. The idea of not having the responsibility of repairs etc. sounds luxurious and tempting, but I think if you choose wisely and buy in an area that is on the up, you shouldn't go wrong. Boy if I'd had some spare moola for property investment a few years ago, I'd be a millionaire now. I can hardly believe what has happened to property prices around here. It makes me GO AWAY developers.( something else i had to get off my chest)Thanx.

Ask your dad or someone you really trust and listen to your instincts
Good luck jess

I agree with all being said here
real estate prices aren't favourable
interest rates are favourable

that's why I tell clients who ask me for advice to get the place they want regardless whether it means renting or buying

since a logical decision can't be made
just follow your heart

I would say rent for now. It sounds like you have barely enough to put down for a mortgage. you then have to factor in closing fees, lawyer fees and all the stuff you have to buy for the place. no use buying a place when you can't afford furniture to put in it.

yes, rent is like throwing away money [don't remind me] but I say rent a cheap place for a year that will give you enough room to save some cash. That way you still have some money for the extra fees or if something happens like you lose your job or something.

I've been renting for almost 5 years now and I can't seem to justify it any longer. I am looking forward to investing in something I can actually touch. I say buy.

Quiet, safe neighbors!!!

Think about it. You probably won't ever have to go down the hallway to tell them to turn their stereos down, or stop the loud party!

I vote for this.


But you'll have to save up a shitload of cash for the rent here. Don't even think you can afford to buy.
