Not all homeowners deserve to stay in their houses. Renting is a perfectly reasonable alternative, but the idea of Americans “losing their houses” is politically untenable. Why? Because America perpetuates a mistaken culture of homeownership. Owning your own home is the kind of BS sacred cow that got us into this mess: Our parents tell us to buy a house. Our friends are impressed if we own a house in our twenties. The government literally encourages us to own a house by offering tax deductions. Homeownership is the American Dream! The truth is, if you’re making the largest purchase of your life, you need more than a slogan — you need to take the responsibility to do some research.I've been talking about the advantages of renting over owning for years and have quite a few blogs posts on the topic. The decision to buy a home should certainly be based on more than a slogan and on more than on the phrase "renting is just throwing your money away."
