A few days back I was invited to a colleague’s housewarming party. My head has been spinning ever since I visited his house. The guy started his career around the same time I did. He bought a 4-bedroom house in an expensive south Florida market, with a yard large enough for a mini soccer match, as well as space for a butterfly area (I saw a few butterflies, too). Should I buy or should I rent?
I am living in a rental condo apartment. I do have enough savings for the down payment required for a similar home, so I started thinking about buying one. I spoke to my wife in the evening about it, and she agreed that this is a good time to buy a home.
