I can’t tell you how many people have given my husband and I “the side eye” for selling our house and moving to an apartment. We downsized before the age of 40 and moved back into the city from the ‘burbs. In many people’s minds, we exchanged the “American dream” of home ownership for slavery to a landlord. Instead of investing in a home we’re now just throwing money away, right? Wrong! This is just one of many financial myths that I’m busting in today’s post.
