I haven't, as it's not fiscally feasible. Not to mention, I'm not totally decided on the living arrangement I'd prefer.

I relocated and sold it 2 years ago.
Not buying again until I figure out where I want to raise my children.

the Numerous snow storms on the east are messing it up for me though.

buying homes isnt easy in the northeast...my parents just bought a foreclosed home (in cash) that they intend to move in, they told me i can have their old home

honestly, buying isn't always beneficial unless you can pay it off quickly

you can pay off the mortgage but depending on where you live they own you with the taxes...i know a lot of people that find renting more beneficial

never bought
a home...doubt i will for a long time

27.  Hubby who was my b/f at the time sold his car to make the down payment. 

Renting really is throwing your money away.  I'm renting now because I haven't been able to narrow down where I want to purchase BUT I'm over paying someone else's mortgage.   Whatever I buy next will be a future rental.   I have a two family rented out now but I'm ready to buy another one and live downstairs until I make up my mind.

I hope this isn't being to invasive, but anyone who has purchased a home care to say how much money they put down, and how much the place was?
It's no joke out here in boston, seems like homeownership is becoming a thing of the past in these northeastern cities. The 2bd condo i'm renting is valued at 200k…TWO BEDROOM!
