Ken Greene welcomes Jake Menath to discuss the pros and cons of renting versus buying a home. He argues that although buying a home is a significant investment, it is one that will eventually pay off. He also advises against overspending on a home and urges people to consider their comfort level before making a purchase.

Jake is a real estate agent and real estate investor. He sold more than $200 million in real estate in his career.

With Ken, they discuss the importance of finding a city that is boundary locked in order to take advantage of appreciation. They mention that zoning is often misunderstood and that it is changing in many cities. They advise people to buy property in a city and hold onto it for the long term.
