  • We own (been here 7.5 yrs). We're hoping to possibly sell, and rent for a couple years. This will enable us to find the house we want and move, without first having to sell the one we're in...because it may take forever!

  • I rent and I don't think I will buy for a long time. I like to move to much. I like to try new states every couple of years.

  • I'm divorced and buying my own home. I owned 2 houses with my ex husband. He let the last one completely fall apart - he refused to put any money into it. Per my request, the judge awarded it to him and he bought me out of it in the divorce settlement.

  • We own have for almost 5 years now. As for the marriage, ya its a bit tougher financially, but we work through it and make it month to month. We realize now we should have done things differently with the money before buying but thats just a lesson learned and we're slowly but surely working our way out of debt and are very intent on NEVER using credit again....so positives have come out too
