Interesting question. Some of the advantages of home ownership is appreciation and lower taxes. Most agree, the real estate market is near the bottom or has actually made the turn up. To me, it makes sense to buy to because the interests are so low, gain some tax deductions to pay less taxes and hope for an increase in equity from appreciation. None of these benefits apply to rentals.
