Re: Should I buy a home or invest? I just reached 200k in savings and they are sittin

If we are talking about the primary home you need a place to live in for piece of mind. Personally, I have rented for many years and I am tired of renting. Therefore it is not appropriate to see it as an investment if it is your 1st home.

However, I think that in the present situation you will get more returns from investments in stocks and other liquid assets rather from real estate (unless you can find an opportunity and do some upgrades/renovations). It is more complicated than that because tax regime also will determine the returns.
