I beg to differ. Buying a house is not a guarentee of investment. It also lends itself to far more upkeep work than an apartment. I have several friends who do not want to own a house. Indeed, one of my friends have sold their after 2 years to go back to an apartment, as it's easier to manage. One might also argue that it "ties you down" somewhat, although I lean less toward this argument.
Overall buying is better than renting. There are a couple of key decisions one has to make though before getting into this.
