Moses O writes: No matter which surveys you look at, though, more renters are saying they want to buy now than they did in the past. That may come as a shock to some, especially when you consider that the housing market is crawling along at a snail’s pace and the U.S. economy as a whole still has a very uncertain future. So, what’s going through the minds of renters? Why settle down and buy a home NOW?
"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity
is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.
