Tell me how you really feel about buying in Chicago

Perusing my daily dose of real estate blog insanity... and when I say insanity I mean addiction. In the best possible terms.

Anyway, I went back to the well, otherwise known as Rain City Guide, to see what's going on . I keep things local, so why read a Seattle area blog? For the advice, education and conversation.

Today's topic? Looking into your soul and making the decision to buy a place or continue renting. Ardell writes a heart felt intervention for a particular young lady who is on advice overload. I point to this post for two reasons:

First, it brings up some interesting angles in the conversation... which always happends here.

Second, if you like real estate, will buy real estate, own real estate, are haunted by real estate (me) then you should read the blog regularly. Look past the local market stuff and dive into the consumer advice and investment portions.

As for buying, I take a more wholistic social benefits angle... but if you read this blog, you already know that. I'm all about the Benjamins too... but there are other reasons to own.
