So here I am, now officially working at my big boy job (well, today was my first day). I want to move out of the parents house, and I am left with a few options. Rent or buy.

I have never lived outside the parents nest egg of home etc and this is going to be a big leap. I don't like frivolously spending money without having some sort of ROI.

I know SLM had that massive thread of when he was house searching, I would just like to point out that I am just looking and am open to all CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

Thoughts and Opinions?
