To Buy or Not to Buy a Home
Living with a roof over your head is a mark of living in a civilized world. A house isn't a luxury, but as essential a need as food and water. Then, may the need of living in a house be fulfilled through renting a place or through buying a house. All of us, at some or the other points in our lives, when there is enough money available for down-payment, go through the predicament about whether to rent or buy a house. Since ages homeownership has met with societal reputation and thus buying a house feels right due to this long-nurtured belief. But, is it truly the right decision? Being inhabitants of a better informed world warrants the need to augment our hunch with facts and making a calculated decision.

The step-by-step process of reaching a decision amidst buying versus renting has been explored in this book wherein by the end you will be able to tell with crystal clarity that 'I want to buy a house or I would rather stay put on rent than buy a house,' whichever the case may be.
