Home buying

I know a couple of people that live in the Alabama area. Actually, I think one of them may be looking for Alabama land for sale. Even though it can be difficult to own a home, it's always nice to have something that is yours. Renting is so expensive anymore. I know that our mortgage payment is less than the rent for any apartment or townhouse of a comparable size. Sure, it's more work but it's a lot more satisfying knowing that it's yours.
