Finding a Place

Lindsey and I still have not found a place to live.  I honestly think there is nothing out there for us.  It is starting to make me go insane.  We had an idea recently, maybe just buy a townhouse.  We found a few in Duncansville that were affordable for us.

My idea was we live there for a few years, the mortgage payment would be less than rent for most nice places.  If work would require us to move, we could either try to sell the place or keep it and rent it out.  Although, everyone tells us this is a terrible idea.

Something tells me we will just end up living in a tiny one bedroom place in the worst part of Altoona, most likely getting robbed once a week.  Obviously I am frustrated.
