The flat in Munich is rented, because when I retire I want to go back to my home town where my parent's house is. I went to Munich for a job and if worse comes to worst I can leave without loosing lots of money - besides, I was newer able to gather enough money to buy some place for living.
I'm surprised how close the spread is, really. I would've thought for sure more renters than anything on a much larger scale.
Anyways, I've been renting for 2 years now and will be moving to Vancouver the end of next month where I'll continue to rent for, likely, another 4-6 years, I wager, before buying a house. I know full well the acting industry won't be kind enough to me prior to that.
