Rude!!! Lol

If there is a real need for a house then buy.

Am renting , you rich ppl do you!

I just bought my 4th property! Buyyyyy

Hahahaha

If you can afford, buy. It’s a good way to invest money too. I bought my second in Jan.

Buy

Wait for housing prices to stabilize /fall down. All recent indicators are showing signs of ending madness

Agree with acn2 check recent news prices already started coming down as people stopped buying another impact due to lumber prices crashed more than 65% which was temp shortage during pandemic.

Practically speaking, the 20% appreciation of last year is basically an anomaly as compared to historical trends. In general, rent vs. buy is always very geography and life situation dependent. No home is a slam dunk investment and property actually doesn’t appreciate super well in a large part of the US. Broadly speaking, if you know you’re gonna stay in a home for 3 years + the math tends be in favor of buying in large chunks of the US (as it offsets the transactions costs). On the flip side, the return on rentals is much higher, so cash flow properties are worth considering. The other upside is basically leverage that you’re able to get via a home loan. The operational challenges are a different matter.
