Martin Column on the Merits of Renting

In his latest column in the Columbia Journalism Review, Justin Martin, a UMaine College of Liberal Arts and Sciences-Honors College Preceptor of Journalism writes about his decision to rent rather than buy a house, despite low mortgage rates and affordable real estate. Martin writes that there is too much risk due to the bad job market, high national debt and legislative struggles to be tied to a piece of property.
