        1. You know all of those are consequently factored into the renter’s budget, right?

          I don’t think anyone’s under the impression that renters are ultimately saving money over the cost of homeownership. It’s just that we never have to come up with 1,000 dollars overnight because the roof started leaking.

          1. idk, my mortgage (including condo fees, taxes and insurance) is half the rent I’d pay on a place 1/2 the size of my condo. It would be fiscally idiotic for me to rent.

            (mortgage: <900/mo rent on apartment with less room, unknowable history of repairs and what that stain is under the sink: <2100/mo)

        1. Condo owner here as well. My mortgage is about half of what a similar apartment would be in this area. However, I do have to pay for new heat pump, water heater, etc. when those go bad. Still, I’ve been here for over 10 years, so I’d say I’ve come out well ahead.

    1. I guess if you’re planning on living in the same place for 10+ years, buying makes sense. But if you plan on moving before that, or don’t know where you’ll be, rent all the way. It’s a lot easier to move out of a rented house than to sell a house.

          I quit. I think I made my point.

  1. That “don’t say I wish, say I will” think doesn’t work at all. “I will I could fly.” “I will I had money.” “I will my dog wasn’t dead.”

    1. that’s because the original wasn’t:
      *stop saying i wish x and start saying i will x*
      but it’s stupid nevertheless

    1. I knew a few young people who bought houses young. In 100% of those situations, Mom and Dad supplied the majority of the down payment.

      1. My husband and I bought our house at age 22, without parental assistance or inheritance. It is definitely possible…good jobs, ability to follow a budget, and a competent real estate agent! It’s not a crazy nice house, and it’s a bit of a commute to work, but we own a 3-bedroom house on a little under an acre in a gated community for only about $250/month more than we were paying to rent a 2-bedroom townhouse with shitty neighbors, a tiny backyard, and no pets allowed.
