I hate the term real estate. It's cold and business-y, everything that tends to make me hide under the bed. What I write about is space: homes, cafes, places where you can do work, pet the cat, and Google your next-door-neighbor from 10 years ago. I write about places. And I like to do it from a personal perspective.

Rental fever

Ah, synchronicity.

My cohort and I were just talking about something of this nature today.

The thrust of the article: Why pay to own property when, for what often amounts to less than half the price, you can rent? Many will argue the value of homeownership, the tax benefits, the achievement of the American Dream.

But these days, renters are getting more property choices and what often amounts to lower monthly payments than homeowners. More freedom and more money -- sounds like the American Dream that's always been promoted to me.
