Buying or Renting a House

Several students opt to purchase homes for their law school years. Durham’s real estate market is generally stable and students have been able to purchase a townhouse or condo and then sell it after graduation. Provided an increase in value (not necessarily a given these days), you can essentially live for free during law school. Generally homes have more square footage than apartments.
