Natural Disasters, recessions, Illness's and accidents happen, and they do affect renters and owners equally.

Renters can quickly move, but owners can become landlords, renters don't have assets to levy, owners can create trusts,  renters just don't have to deal with 'property/neighborhood' problems, Owners can buy where there should not be those problems.

But for 'Stability, Security, Creativity, longevity and purpose'  purchasing and living in a home, long term, appears to be the right and smartest choice for the majority of Americans, in this writers opinion.
