...it's time. Between running and work, I have pretty close to zero free minutes Monday through Friday. And I do not want to spend all weekend mowing, painting, fixing the fence, replacing the water heater, cleaning, and on and on...and still have tons of laundry to do.
I am almost 40, am saving 25% of my salary for retirement and have enough cash stashed away that I could almost buy a house debt free, but I don't have TIME.
Renting is the only way to go for me until I retire. Then I'll look at buying a house. Until tthen, quit asking me about it.
