We bought a house in Fayetteville instead of renting. It is such a hot market right now there that it makes a lot of sense for us. The house we bought sold for 97,000 2 years ago and we're buying it for 129. That's like 30% in two years. And even if we don't make money on it it's better than throwing away money renting.
I think BECAUSE it is Catholic Ave Maria can't be considered to be so conservative. If you think about it some of the most forward thinkers and those that believe in charity and compassion have been Catholic. Ignatious Loyola and the Jesuits come to my mind.
