If you have the money for a down payment and you have the credit score, it may be a good idea. You probably know all the good stuff, building equity, sense of ownership, tax benefit. etc.
Home ownership has a down side. You have to maintain it yourself, you have to do the yard work (or pay someone to do it), and when something breaks like a water heater or the furnace it comes out of your pocket. Not to mention insurance, taxes, and the cost of selling a house if you decide it was a bad idea.
Houses take up lots of time or money. That said, I will never rent again unless something catastrophic happens.
