If your considering whether to buy or rent in this current crazy market you may want to consider the tax advantage to having a mortgage.
I like owning because I choose when I am going to move not my landlord and when I do I get money from the sale. Renting at $1500 a month is the same as kissing 18,000 dollars good-bye. That 18,000 could be use to renovate a home you own or a down payment for one.
I also get to paint and renovate the home the way I like it.
