Well, I'm only 21 so I still live at home. I'm a full time student for another year. Next spring, between homework and work, I will spend my hours looking for a house. Maybe I'll rent for a while, maybe I'll have an apartment, maybe I'll find a good deal and buy. Who knows, all I know is I absolutely hate living at home, but I will not complain because I could not ask for better parents.

I'm 21, living at home, renting a shop. I will probably buy a house this year to get my $8000 Obama tax credit. My parents are pretty good, I park my rig at the shop and everything else somewhere on their 50 acres, no big complaints and i've been able to save a ton of money in the last couple years for a pretty good down payment on a decent house. But I am ready to be out and all that fun stuff, I guess.... like a mortgage, insurance, property taxes etc etc, lol.

I've never really understood the concept of renting any place why would you just throw your money away in rent. Local apartment where I live run $550 for a studio to $700 for a 2 bedroom. I've been looking for a place of my own because I know that I would be able to get a home for a little more then $700/month. Plus if you play your cards right you can get a nice place for not much more then an apartment. However when you buy a home you are making a very big commitment and so if your thinking about staying in the area buy a home and make sure that you can use some of the space at your home for yours business so that you can take some of that off on your taxes .


But for now living at home gives me flexibility because I am a full time student and I'm only home for about 4 months.

Holy crap, a 2 bedroom for yall is the cost for a 1 bed room here. The 2 bedrooms cost roughly 850-900 bucks.
