Do you rent or own?

Do you own your house? Do you rent a house, apartment, townhome, etc? If you rent a house how did you find it? We are looking for a house to rent but they aren't easy to come by.

  • I rent a condo. I just went to a realty company and ask them for a print out of all their rentals. They had houses but I didn't want a house since I live alone

  • We live on base, therefore we rent. =/. We don't see the point in purchasing a home when we will just be moving every few years (it seems like too much of a hassle, and we're not open to the idea of renting it out when we relocate), so we will likely buy after my husband gets out of the Navy... In 15 years. *sigh*

  • If you know what neighborhood that you want to live in, drive around. If you live in a big enough town or city, you will find houses with For Rent signs out front.

  • We own our home. We bought it brand new in 1988 and spent 63,000.00 for it! Back then that was a fortune! Wish prices were that low now :( Would love to see my boys be able to buy their own home someday.

  • I rent an apartment, and I found it through the local paper. My landlord is AWESOME, and I pay the rent by the year. He lets us do whatever we want pretty much, there was no deposit, and he doesn't care if you have pets :) He is the most easygoing landlord I've ever met!
