    Default Rent or Own

    We own (with mortgage).
    We were able to buy as we lived with parents-in-law for 12 months, some of it when I was on mat leave(with no income) so we could save the rest of what we needed for the deposit.

    We rent and we probably will for a long, long time.
    I'm ok with it I guess but I really would like to own one day.
