BL: I'm hoping to get some input from some of the wiser folks on this forum about buying vs renting a home. Later this month, my time at Vance AFB will finally be coming to an end (for now...). I'll make a stop in Altus, and then sometime in August I'll be moving to Dover AFB. In my free time, I've recently started looking at potential housing in Delaware. In terms of what I need, I'm not married, so I've been looking at apartments, townhouses, and small homes. I'm also looking at rentals versus for sale properties. As I look over the course of a career, I know I'd prefer to not rent for 10-20 years and lose out on the opportunity to build my own equity. But at the same time, I must admit the process of buying and selling, and associated risk of losing home value or having the home on the market for a long time is intimidating. Though I know the ultimate answer is, "it depends," I'm curious what my fellow forum member's experiences have been about choosing housing, especially as a young CGO. If I look more towards the rental option, does anyone want to make a case for base housing? Thank you!
