    I think owning a home is very important and it should be a priority. Our properties will ensure financial security for our children and that is what is important to us. It's also nice to be in your own home and know your secure and you can do what you like without restrictions you have when renting.

    Without the tenant, the owner could very well lose their house!

    Well actually we just wouldn't have as much money in our savings account if we didn't have tenants. We actually can afford to pay our own mortgages with our wages.

    To you a priority maybe. Not us.

    Nothing is more important to us than me being at home with dd.

    That's brilliant that your priorities are right for you and your family.
    Simply because I don't share the same priorities at this point in my life doesn't mean I have my priorities wrong though, mine are perfect for myself and my family

    For some people, it just isn't realistically possible. Home ownership certainly isn't a one-size-fits-all. It would be great if everyone could own their own home, but this is the real world!

    I love that you are so against people renting, but will quite happily make further income for yourself by renting out to others. Pot meet kettle.

    Well done for you, but isn't even close to reality for a lot of people.

    Yes and Own one home without both parents working themselves into the ground, let alone several houses!! Esp for first home owners trying to get in the market.

    Yeah you might be helping the landlord pay his/her mortgage.
    But they still pay rates, fix things on the property, replace hot water systems, fix lights etc, water access charges, pay house insurance, Pay real-estate fees, our landlords are about to get all the window locks changed, security bars etc fitted to the front of the house to comply with new security regulations for rentals in our area, they pay for any emergencies ie; electrical faults.
    There are many extra fees for owning a home than what you pay in rent, if you rent and your "Already paying someone's else mortgage!" Then why not buy a house yourself?
    I sure know I can afford a mortgage but I sure as hell can't afford the other costs right now!
    You might pay rent yes, but that doesn't mean the owners are paying nothing for the house you reside in.
    Respect it.
    True
