Rent or Buy? (DC Metro Area)I'm living in the DC Metro Area and my wife and I are currently renting a place together for approx $25k a year. Since we know we're going to be here for the next 5 years at least, it is smart to purchase a home or continue to rent.I'm fairly new to this so it would be great to get some feedback.Also, any areas for buying town homes would be great.September 12 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
