If you’re planning to remain in a place for a longer period of time, buying a house is usually the way to go (however, this equation changes with home values in your area, employment trends and several other factors).
Also, don’t forget moving fees and labor, and any fixes that you might have to make to the house upon moving in, plus monthly maintenance fees if you’re moving into a condo or planned community.
Keep in mind, in addition to the mortgage costs, you’ll have to pay the closing costs and legal fees, which are usually 2% to 3% of the house price.
While agents use comparable houses, or “comps” as way to price a house, consider what it might cost to buy and build a home on piece of land in that area.
Renting makes sense if you plan to live somewhere for a relatively short period of time, as the costs associated with buying a home — such as escrow fees, taxes and closing costs — take some time to amortize.
While thoughts of white picket fences and granite countertops might be dancing in your head, you don’t want to be carried off by a dream and left holding a serious bill.
With this first-time home buying section, you’ll be on your way to owning your dream house in no time.
First-time home buying can be a major stress simply because of the novelty and the complication of the whole process.

Kolko: “Manhattan prices are sky-high, making Manhattan one of the few places in the country where it's cheaper to rent than to buy a comparable unit.
“Coming out of this housing crash, the big change is that people now realize housing is not a risk-free investment.
“Building a new home (or buying one that's under construction) lets you customize features yourself, and its often easier to build in certain features (Ethernet wiring, radiant heat, etc.) from the start than tearing up an existing home to add them.
A wide range of companies making the 2014 HW Fast50 suggests that — are you ready for this? — maybe things aren't as bad in the U.S. mortgage and housing markets as some breathless press might otherwise suggest.
Kolko: “Southern California home prices now look about 10-15% overvalued relative to fundamentals.
Kolko: “When you look over the really long term, housing has tended to be roughly similar to stocks/equities.
“Housing affordability is always a challenge for California, especially in the big coastal markets.

For example, as of November 2013[update], the Wikipedia subreddit – subtitled "the most interesting pages on Wikipedia" – has over 143,000 subscribers.[12] Reddit comments and submissions are occasionally abbreviated and peppered with terms that are understood within (and in many cases also outside) the Reddit community, ranging from OP (for “original poster” – the user who posted the submission being commented upon) to NSFW (for “not safe for work”).[13] Users earn "link karma" and "comment karma" for submitting popular links and comments, which accumulate as point values on their user profile.
In July 2010, after explosive traffic growth, Reddit introduced Reddit Gold, offering new features for a price of $3.99/month or $29.99/year.[51] Reddit Gold adds a number of features to the interface, including the ability to display more comments on a page, access to the private subreddit /r/lounge, and notifications whenever one’s username is mentioned in a comment.
In February 2013, Betabeat published a post recognized the influx of multi-national corporations like Costco, Taco Bell, Subaru, and McDonald’s posting branded content on Reddit that was made to appear as if it was original content from legitimate Reddit users.
For example, the University of Reddit, a subreddit that exists to communally teach, emerged from the ability to enter and leave the online forum, the “classroom," at will, and classes ranging from computer science to music, to fine art theory exist.[79] The unique possibilities that subreddits provide create new opportunities for raising attention and fostering discussion across many areas.
In response to this influx of content skeptical Reddit users created a Hail Corporate subreddit to expose these attempts by corporate marketers to manipulate the site.
On December 16, 2010, a Redditor named Matt posted a link describing how he has donated a kidney, and included a JustGive link to encourage users to give donations to the American Cancer Society.[112] After an initially positive reaction, Reddit users began to become suspicious of Matt’s intentions, and suggested that he was keeping the donations for himself.
AMAs are open to all Reddit users, and use the site’s comment system for both questions and answers; it is similar to a press conference, but online.
Users may also be gifted "reddit gold" if another user has well received the comment or post, generally due to humorous or high quality content.
Before you go shopping make sure you have the cash on hand for a down payment and a mortgage lender who is willing to provide you with a home loan at an affordable rate.
In addition to mortgage and principal payments, buying a home means paying for insurance, maintenance and real estate taxes.
“Real estate is not as liquid an investment as it was 5 or 10 years ago,” cautions Steve Domber, president of Prudential Serls Prime Properties, a real estate broker firm operating across New York state and Connecticut.
Get pre-approved by a lender or mortgage brokers (and check out your broker at Pre-approval can help expedite the closing of your purchase, a process that given the current economic climate can take months.

So when you make your offer to sell, you put in a list of things that you would accept, like: 15 platinum OR iron phoenix mod.  People can then browse the Exchange and choose what they want to spend.  I’m not sold on the idea of credits being an option, since in a very real way credits represent play time.
Credits-only AH would be unused.  "Credits become useful if they can buy stuff on the AH" runs into a problem of putting the cart before the horse.  The only way you can buy stuff on the AH is if people actually list things there, and with no actual need for credits no one would list anything.
