Plus the mortgage game is geared to keep one in debt basically for the rest of their lives.I wholeheartedly DISAGREE with this statement.If you buy a place you can afford, NOT what the banks approve you for, it is fully concievable that you can pay off your mortgage 10 or more years early. I purchased my place 3 years ago when I was 25. I have been making slightly accelerated bi-weekly payments (extra $100/month). I have 14 years left on my mortgage. At this rate, I will be mortgage free by the time I am 42. The only on-going home expenses would be condo fees and property tax.Paying rent can't do that for me.
