    I saw we own a condo…but if I were renting this place (as some do), I have to say I’d call it an apt

    We own our condo apartment. Technically anything that is governed by a condominium board is a condominium (HOA for those of you in the US, I guess?). Townhouses, apartments, bungalows, 2 storey homes can all be condos. It’s a lot more common now to see bungalow condominums now because of the aging population!

    Hubby bought a house about 7 years beefore we met. I had rented until then. And since Texas is a community proprety state, WE own a house. 🙂

    We own a house. We bought it about 2.5 months into our relationship. Pretty crazy, but it’s worked out well! We are selling it soon and moving to another house in Victoria, B.C. Fiance already owned it before we met and has been renting it while here in Quebec.

    We own a house. We purchased it after getting engaged and had our reception in our backyard. Part of me wishes we had waited a little longer so we would be in a better spot financially, but I love owning our own place.

    Right now we rent a house but we are in the process of building and closing on Dec. 27. So I would say that we are closer to owning and being done with renting.

    We rent a townhome. The home prices outside of Boston where we live are really expensive and while we have the income, I don’t think we have strong enough credit to get a good enough rate, so we’re waiting. Also DH’s job requires us to move every 2-3 years, there’s no reason to buy anytime soon.

    Fiance bought his townhouse (I picked other, wasn’t sure how to classify goofy DC property) right before we started dating.  We have a lease agreement (both of us are 100% comitted but this way renovations are easier to stomach) before the wedding, and I’ll be added to the mortgage after the wedding.

    We rent a condo but weve been thinking about asking our landlady if we can buy it and remodel. I lived here 4 years before I met him so he moved in with me. Were currently trying to find a house too but he needs to find a job in his criminal justice field first. 

    Eventually we’d like to own a few properties and rent them out.

    We own our home. We built it and chose the design the weekend we got engaged and moved in 4 months after our wedding.

    We live in an apartment & its perfect for us right now. Love the amenties! Eventually we will probably purchase a home, we just need to decide if we are going to stay in the current state we are in or not.
