We are renting a 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom house old farm house with a full basement for $650.00 a month. We could BUY this mobile home that is 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, built in 2006, and on 1.06 acres of land for around $290.00 a month. It is within 5 miles from where we are currently renting. Would you live in this trailer for a few years while finishing school and getting a better job? I would feel like my money is actually going towards something instead of being thrown away in rent. And if we decide to stay in this area after finishing school then we could probably move the trailer off the land and build the house we actually want later on. This would be a small sacrifice for size because we would have 2 adults and 4 kids so our 3 boys would have to share a room. But would it be worth it in the long run?
