Have you considered whether or not you should buy or rent your home? There are many pros and cons to weigh. Even though owning a home is a big responsibility, many people want to own a home - they want "the American dream".

There are many benefits of owning a home, including tax benefits and building an investment through equity in your home. Owning a home is possibly the number one way to build wealth for families. However, you should be aware that the financial responsibilities, including real estate taxes, homeowners' insurance, and maintenance can be significant.
The advantages of renting include the flexibility to move, and the freedom from most maintenance costs. However, you face rent increases and the ability to decorate without the landlord's permission.
When Trulia compared the monthly costs of owning and renting, they concluded, that on the average, the long term benefits of purchasing a home are greater than renting a home. Owning your own home is also a source of pride and security.

To Buy or Not to BuyI would say as a realtor, the question I am asked
"With a very limited time frame to find and purchase a home, John was able to quickly schedule showings of many homes that fit my criteria. He was there to guide me through the process as a first-time home buyer. John did an excellent job keeping track of many moving pieces, and I never felt worried that I was forgetting something. He was there to remind me when things were happening, and was very prompt in answering all of my questions. I highly recommend using John Fischer when looking for your first or next home."
