I know it's easier, but sheesh. It's just throwing money away, especially around these parts where rent is absurd.
Meh. If you've got a chunk of cash burning a hole in your pocket, you'll make more money in an index fund than you will ]investing that into a down payment on a primary residence. The decision is even easier when I can make one phone call and have a broken refrigerator or leaky faucet fixed in 24 hours for free and with no effort beyond that phone call.
