Should I Buy My Primary Residence? | 3rd Degree Thursday

Should I Buy My Primary ResidenceConventional wisdom dictates that your primary residence is your best investment — but is it really? Is it possible that, contrary to what we’ve all been told, that it’s actually the worst investment to make? Matt gives you the unequivocal answer on today’s episode!


I have been digging into your material and would love to hear you elaborate on why buying a home for personal use is a bad investment.  Cheers!
