A house with backyard,so my pets would play around;
I need a house,
could be a stone house, but it is a shelter to prevent from the rain and the snow;
I need a house,
It doesn't matter there is no hot water in the winter time, at least,
I can give my family a place to sleep,
A place to live,
A place to laugh and to cry...

How many of you have your own house?

I've owned three in my life and will never own another one.
Renting is so much better. You spend the first 20 years of a 30 year loan
giving the bank money for doing nothing. If you sell before 10 years is up you're
lucky to get anything out of it unless you happen to be in the middle of a real estate bubble.
Meanwhile all your extra time and money is spent on upkeep and upgrades.
Plus, if you happen to have noisy or nosy neighbors you're pretty much stuck with them
for a long, long time. Have fun paying for insurance and property taxes too.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Why not just rent one?
I still don't see the advantage of buying a house if you live in China.
