    We currently rent an apartment.  DH is in the military, so I’m hoping  that he ends up with orders to stay in the area so we can look at buying a house (we don’t live on base and don’t want to…it is nice for him to feel like he isn’t always “at work”…though sometimes it feels like moving into base housing would be easier!)

    We live in a house that I owned before DH and I met.  Lots of rooms and a huge yard which is way more than we need.  Being that we are sending the youngest off to college next year, we plan on downsizing into a duplex in about a year or so.  We plan to keep the other half of the duplex available for the kids/young adults when they need it during college breaks.  We think it would be ideal.  We’d have our space and they would have theirs.

    We rent a house but it is a 2 year lease with option to purchase. We have been here a year next week. When we moved to Myrtle Beach we didn’t know the area well enough to commit to purchase. Now that we live here we love the house and it’s less than 2 blocks to the ocean, I imagine we will think about buying it when the time comes.

    We own our house. We lived together in a rented home for 6 months, then found our perfect house and bought it. We bought it before we were engaged or married.

    We rent a house. I would prefer to rent an apartment but we live out in the country and every single apartment complex (literally) is low-income based, which we don’t qualify for.  We will probably be in this house for 2-3 years, since we eventually want to move 30-40 miles away in the future.

    Own an apartment?  What is that?  If you own an apartment…. isnt that a condo?

    We rent an apartment in downtown Chicago, which is fairly costly. We both work downtown so it makes sense. However, Fiance wants to find a job in the suburbs soon (he’s a teacher) so we will probably move out there in a year or two. When we do, I hope to buy a house since we’ll have enough money for a down payment at that time and our monthly mortgage will be less than the rent we pay now!

    We rent a duplex. It’s an awesome price for the area we live in. We would love to have our own house but we’re not ready financially. Hopefully a year out two after our wedding we’ll be ready.

    We rent a duplex. I HATE it. I hate sharing a house and driveway with another family.

    We rent the second floor of a house. I voted for duplex but it’s actually a triplex! We are on the second floor, sandwiched between an elderly Italian brother (upstairs) and sister (downstairs) – they are soooo loud!

    We will buy a house eventually, and hopefully in the same neighbourhood we’re in now.

    @nutMeg13: Haha, agree. Although I don’t hate where we live, our landlady who lives downstairs is definitely all up in our business. And she doesn’t really speak English (although she thinks she can) so it leads to many awkward conversations. And she has a really loud yappy dog.
