Don't Buy, RENT your HOME

Everyone needs a roof! What if someone plans to stay in the same place for 3 to 5 years? They can have rented and saved tens of thousands of dollars instead of buying in a crashing market and losing tens of thousands. People are living today to 80 years..maybe more, so why be impatient and purchase something that will put you financially backwards?


Stop refinancing every 3 yrs and RENT Now!

Have a place you can call home
Screw tiny tax benefits, save tons.
Be in control of your financial future..not a frustrated Landlord

If you're not in control of your finances..Don't Buy.. pay someone else's mortgage...

If you have credit issues...fix them! Start paying your bills on time!

Even most illegal immigrants can pay their rent, car payments and even mortgages on time!

Get a job...or an extra part time to save for the Down payment/closing costs

Not making enough money? Get education..start a business..

Stop complaining about everything and Do Something constructive!

But if you plan to stay in a certain area for 10 or more yrs..
RENT..DON'T BUY IN THIS FLAILING MARKET!

Don't Rent, Buy your Home

If only the NYTimes would replace NAR's awful awful awful disgusting ad with what you wrote, Aldreth. Thousand of families would be saved. Just look at this garbage:

http://www.realtor.org/files/home_buyers___sellers/good_time_to_buy_ad.pdf

Would I sound stupid if I said that saving $4000 in taxes is financially sound if my home depreciates $40k and my monthly payments are double? Yes, and I would have to be a mindless cheerleader to believe that.

Renting = freedom. Freedom from maintenance, freedom from the contract of death (a mortgage), freedom from the tens of thousands of dollars spent buying and selling. Freedom from worrying about my financial future when values are below what is owed. When value < owed, you are a prisoner of your home and a slave to the banks.

Until the worms admit there is no rebuttal and he's right. Got anything to challenge it? Thought not.

I bet Klarek is just one cubicle away from aldreth.

I do have a rebuttal. give me your fax number so that I can litter your desk with current contract copies of investors buying properties as rentals. Sit down cuz heres the kicker- they are going to buy as long as the bank will keep lending them money. I bet that stands the peach fuz on your pigeon neck.

Yeah, yeah....piles of "investors contracts".....that's the ticket.

Cuz we all know that "investors" blindly buy rental properties based only on whether the bank will lend to them the money.
