This is like waving a red flag in front of a Realtor:
A rental does not appreciate for you,
it appreciates for the owner.

Almost everyone, (you know "they") think that Real Estate is going to go up.

To rent or buy is all about costs and lifestyle. Costs—financing v. moving-in, mortgage v. rent, repairs v. upkeep. Lifestyle—stability v. mobility, predictability v. flexibility, equity v. freedom from debt. It used to be all about equity. Now, there are other variables to consider in the balancing of the buy/rent equation. Consult with your tax professional, and or financial planner, and see what's best for you....
