Buying a house is a huge commitment.  Renting a house is a big commitment too, if not quite so weighty.  Sure, there are many factors that go into the buying vs renting a house decision, so the financial aspect isn't all there is to it.

 

But, be sure to understand that the conventional wisdom ("you're just throwing money away if you rent") isn't always the case.  You may be throwing a lot more money away if you buy.

 

Financial wisdom includes how you handle what is probably the biggest expenditure you have: housing.  Make an informed decision.  Then, move on to understand how you can attain Financial Freedom.
