I thought this was quite funny and profound:

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Billionaire Warren Buffett said buying a home was the third-best investment he ever made, after the rings he bought for his first wife, Susan Thompson, and, after her death, his second wife, Astrid Menks.

Maybe, but only because of the mortgage deduction. I don't have any plans of buying a home for a very long time - a large concentrated investment in an illiquid investment with idiosyncratic risks? No thanks....I'll rent.
