Buying: Build Equity, Home will appreciate in value, You get a tax write off, dollar for dollar, the purchase home is nicer than the rental (usually by a lot), and you have ownership in something that in all literal reality is an asset you can hold on to, rent it out and make money off of it! Great investment.
Renting: Nothing! But your landlord will love you for all of the reasons listed above.
