Is renting a place to live a bad investment?

Renting isn't an investment. You gotta live somewhere. If you can afford to make mortgage payments and intend to live in the house after the loan is paid, of course it's better than making rent payments all that time. But when you're planning on staying somewhere for only a few years, renting is often wiser than buying a house. The last five years has shown just how badly you can get burned in the short term.

Its okay while you are getting together things such as saving, school and credit but once you get things together. Its better to Own something that you can paint bright pink if you want too plus dealing with landlords that refuse to fix something is a headache

I would say so, after years you've spent alot of money, yet own nothing. Unless its very temporary I wouldn't advise.
