Yes. There are lots of places to live - apartments, castles, vans, under bridges, etc. There are pros and cons with sticking to a good old house, and pros and cons to renting versus buying the sucker.
Living in a house is sweet because it's a place to yourself - you can usually have sex without your neighbors hearing. But of course with great privacy comes great responsibility, and a great migration of money from your pocket.
If you buy the house, it's yours. You have the security of ownership. On the other hand, when the heater breaks, it's your own damn problem. And assuming you don't have the cash sitting around to hand over immediately, you're stuck with loans. Getting mortgages, for people with bad credit, isn't fun times. Having one, and needing to refinance the mortgage isn't fun times. Looking for mortgage refinance no closing costs isn't fun times.
But you can cover the living room in peanut butter and no one will give a shit.
House, bungalow, dollhouse, apartment, what's your choice?
