  • I have done both and I would so much rather own. With 2 dogs and a small child I don't want any one telling me what my family can and can not do inside my own home. If I want to paint a certain color than I can. I can design it any way I want and while we still have neighbors they are not right on top of us or below us driving me bananas or us dirivng them bananas.

  • We own and like this a lot better. However when we were renting it was nice that we didnt have to pay for repairs

  • I've only lived in one apartment. That was right after I graduated high school. That was only for a year. Never again! I have owned my own homes ever since. I never have to beg and wait for a landlord to get something fixed. And, I can do whatever I darned well please to my home without somebody's permission. I spend less on a house payment for a 2000 sq ft home than most ppl pay for an apartment.

  • Rent.

    I have never had any interest or desire in owning a home.. I have no interest in lawn/yard work , no desire to do my own maintenance, and I like being able to just pack up and move around whenever the mood strikes me.

  • Own, I'm just a private person. I like being able to do what I want with my yard & home (within reason).

  • Own - but it depends on your life situation. I bought my first house when I was 21 (am now 51).

  • Own, I like the peace and quiet of not having neighbors on top or bottom.
