Ask the Readers: Would You Rather Rent or Buy a Home?

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Betty, Amanda, and Jennifer for winning this week's contest!

Conventional wisdom used to say that it makes more financial sense to save up and buy a home than to rent long term, but that isn't necessarily the case anymore. It really depends on the kind of work you do, the kind of lifestyle you want to lead, and (let's face it) your bank balance.

Would you rather rent or buy a home? Why? What home-owning or renting benefit is most appealing to you?

Tell us if you would rather rent or buy a home and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!
