Just to add to what has already been said on this topic..........

I agree that it is all about the numbers. In the long run you may spend more on a rental, but the real question I would ask is, are you tied to the seven (7) years? Is there a possibility that you may have to leave sooner rather than later?

If you haven't lived in the city yet, it may be a good option to rent and test out the different neighborhoods. If there is nothing tying you to the city, then I don't see a rental being a bad decision.

Feel free to give me a call or shoot me an e-mail at any time and I'd be more than happy to discuss some options with you.
