Buys or rent?I am staying in Iowa for a job for the next 5 years. I pay around 10,000$/year for rent right now. I am looking for a single family house around 180,000. I am not interested in taking loans and have the money to pay full price in cash (don't know if this is wise or not though). Would it be worth it to buy and sell in five years or spend another 50,000+ for rent and avoid the hassle of taxes, closing fees and selling the property?May 13 2013 - Iowa City00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
