rent. with the traffic in Atlanta, I insist on living close to my job so until i start working for myself fulltime, I guess I could be paying someone else's mortgage for a while :( but I hope to change all that soon :)

My boyfriend and I are waiting for the market to dip a little more before we buy, so hopefully in 6 months time. :)

Own...I was hesitant to purchase, being that we're young, but my husband insisted. 2 years later and our little condo has appreciated A LOT, so we're thrilled.

We bought a tiny home in Southern CA 3 years ago, struggled, paid a huge mortgage, and lived in it for 2 years. Then we sold it and used the proceeds to buy a McMansion in Texas. Life is good!

I'm living with my parents again because rent have gotten so high here. Owning a house is completely out of the question. I just keep telling myself that I haven't decided where i wasnt to live yet!

It amazes me, how real estate fluctuates from state to state. My husband built our cottage in New Hampshire 20 years ago. It's on 5 acres, with gorgeous views of the mountains. Our mortgage is $522 a month.My best friend, in Connecticut, pays $1800.It's crazy !

I own, but it was actually a mistake to buy. My mortgage/hoa is more than I can afford, and with the market as is, if I sold I would take a huge loss. I do love my place though...

We own the townhouse we live in, but also own my former home where I lived before we were getting married. We rent my old house out, which I would not recommend. It is not fun being an landlord, although we have a running joke about me yelling at our tenant like Pearl does in The Landlord. :)

We own our home. A few years back, due to my husbands work, we chose to relocate to northern California. We did not sell our home, but instead chose to rent it out to a so-called friend. What a mistake!! Any how, during our time up north, we rented a couple of different places with acreage that were great!! I wish now that we would have thought about purchasing at least one of these, especially the one with the two rivers that joined on the property.

My boyfriend and I rent an apt in Manhattan and own a small house in the Hamptons (where I grew up and my parents still live). The Hamptons house is an investment and we rent it out for the summers, but we still get to use it all spring, fall and winter!

Best investment ever!

Unfortunately, I'm renting at the moment. I'm hoping to move to a big city soon, so I didn't want to settle down.
