Once again, home ownership vs. renting is not an easy decision.

But it isn't terribly difficult either. One thing that has barely been mentioned in this discussion is the examining the cost of ownership vs. the cost of renting in that location. In some places buying is a screaming bargain, in other places it isn't.

Once you evaluate the costs of each, you can make a pretty good decision which is likely to be financially wiser.
