    We own.  We bought our house just over 3 years ago.

    We own. Actually, I’ve never rented. When I moved out the first time I bought a condo, then sold that to buy a house with Fiance.

    I hate the idea that I see no return from renting, so I found a way to make buying work for me.

    We own, but only because it was cheaper than renting a place. My Boyfriend or Best Friend got a job an hour away from where we were from. Since he worked for a bank (and started his job job with a different one), he was able to do a minimum down payment due to employee financing. Another plus was the house we bought was on the market for a while, so we were able to get half of the tax assessed value and 10K under the asking price. We’re able to have a house for over a $100 less than it would be to rent.

    @ThreeMeers:  I’m with you! We think we won’t buy for the next 10+ yrs until we can buy a home outright. Rarely do people calculate the true cost plus paying all that interest on a mortgage when you can just WAIT! Paying all the interest on my student loans has traumatized me to the point that I never want to take out another loan in my life. (a little dramatic- I know Tongue Out)
