In today's economy is it better to own or rent, possibly rent to own a home. I have 4 children and live in a small 3 bedroom house and I desperately want to get a bigger home. With not so perfect credit and my husband on disability, I am not sure I am ready to own. I know with maintenance problems, owning can be expensive. The house I live in is paid for, but it is a 3 bedroom mobile home, which I can possibly rent out to help pay mortgage but being a landlord can be expensive too.Answer Question

My husband and I have always owned our home since we were married. We are in our third one. Owning is an investment, rent is dead money. We were able to upgrade our home every time we moved with the profit from the sale of the previous one.
