Is It Better to Buy or Rent? - New York Times: "But renting might deserve another look right now. After five years in which rents have barely budged while house prices in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and elsewhere have doubled, renting has become a surprisingly smart option for many people who never would have considered it before"
Something I have been saying for quite a while. Renting is also a whole lot easier. Not saying it is always right, but it is also not always wrong!
