Buy in DC metro area or DFW area?Hi everyone, I have been living in the DC metro area for 8 years. Rent is sky high compared to other cities and of course so are the home prices (especially if you need a metro accessible property, which I do). My rent is currently $1800 and I'm starting to feel like I'm throwing money away. So I've recently started looking to buy a condo but the prices in the most affordable location for me are $300-350K for a one bedroom+ den. Another alternative is to buy cash (about $150K) in another state (TX is an option because I have family there) and rent out the property (rent would probably be $1000-1500) to off-set my rent in DC. Which would be the better option? Buy in DC metro or DFW metro?
