Buying is always smarter than renting in 99.9% of the cases.
Buying in Golden, CO wouldn't be any less wise, unless it is a market/community not conducive to your lifestyle.
Rates are low and it is a buyers market. Yes, I'd take advantage of it.
Find a buyer agent who is an expert in Golden and one that understands your needs from a personal standpoint and a financial one. Then begin looking.
Good luck,
Susan Walker

Hi Bruce,

First, let me say that Trulia Real Estate Search and Trulia Voices are actually tools and open forums for both consumers and real estate professionals.

Regarding your desire to sell & move, how would you categorize the current market in your home town? Is it a Seller's market, Buyer's market or somewhat neutral? What is the average appreciation rate for your area? You may want to consider interviewing a couple of real estate professionals in your area to get their assessment of current market conditions as well as a recommendation on a possible list price. Be sure to ask to see a "seller's net sheet."

What is the driving force behind your decision to rent v/s buy? Are you thinking that you will not have enough equity from the sale of your present home? Or, is it because of a temporary job relocation? I presume that you did not have a home buyer's warranty (HBW) in force when you originally purchased the home or you did not renew it after the first year. I insist on HBW's for my clients and strongly encourage them to renew them, especially if the home is older (10+ years).

In my opinion, if you like the tax write-off and benefits of owning your own place, stick with purchasing another home. However, be sure to have it professionally inspected and have your Realtor negotiate a provision in the contract whereby the seller pays for a HBW.

Best wishes - Ted
