I just read through the threaded messages re: rent verses own. From what I read the "best" choice is dependent ultimately on a set of variables that are unique to an individual or couple's situation.I love my home and did not buy it as an investment and do not regard it as such. It has a market value and could be converted to cash and as such is an asset. I just made sure I paid it off before I became a retired Fool. But it ends there. My real investments are seperate from my home. I guess that's an emotional choice I made long ago. I studied architecture in college and like to build, renovate and even cut grass. Though I live in a small village, I have a small pond, stream and wooded area, that is slowly evolving into a beautiful garden area. Like a lot of other choices or should I say preferences in life: blond or brunette, vanilla or chocolate, mountains or shore, Ford or Chevy, retire early or not, rent or own, what works for your criteria and circumstances is the best choice.(For me: brunette, chocolate, shore, Ford, retire early and for now...own..<grin>)ttjasi
