The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Rent or Own?

Here at the Ping, we’ve discussed both apartment search websites and home prices, so it’s clear that we cover both bases when it comes to home ownership.

I’ve been renting since I moved out of my parents’ house in 2000, and do hope to own before I get really old. I think it’s possible now, too, which helps. But that dovetails with something interesting I noted while I lived in Denver: people there tend to own homes more than rent. And in places like Chicago and NYC, for instance, renting is quite normal. I suppose part of that’s due to the home prices.

I’m curious as to how many Pingers own and how many rent. How long have you been at it, and will you switch camps?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
