Owning a Home Isn’t Always a Virtue

Nothing new here. I remember reading this stuff 5 years ago. I guess housing is back in focus again.

Regarding the content, though, it's true that America is really not setup for renting and its so frustrating. At this point I really just want to rent for-ever. The main reasons not to?

- Stigmatism against renters. That's especially hard on kids.
- Lack of adequate rental facilities.

3+br apartments rent for a massive premium compared to 1br and 2br units, if you can even find them. Nice complexes are rarely in areas with good schools. Rental houses are generally of very low quality. At least in Boston, very limited choices. It's colonial, cape, split level, or ranch. LongviewPlace was a major anomaly in that area, with its modern design. Having looked at housing in a few other cities at this point it's striking how uniform architecture is in a city that prides itself in creativity. Outside of 50 fields in North Waltham, there's hardly any mid-century Modern homes even!
