Dave, what do you think of renting?
Given that you have some unconventional views of mortgage debt, I am interested in your opinions about renting.
(of course, I'm interested in input from others as well)
In the past, I have found that I have been better off financially when I have simply rented as opposed to owning.
No home maintenance, no time/labor spent fooling with the house, and no hassles when needing to move.
I should add that when I rented, I slummed it... renting in places far below my means. Granted, this is not the usual practice here in the U.S.
So what do you think of renting in the big financial picture?
