I will be moving to either Athens, GA or Knoxville, TN next year to start my MBA.  Luckily, my wife works full time and makes a good income.  We are trying to decide whether we should buy or rent for the roughly 2 years we will be in that location.  Any guidance or references that address this situation would be greatly appreciated. 


If we do buy the plan would be to live in the house for ~2 years and then rent it out using a property management company.  Thank you for your time. 


@J Guy, That's a great question. You can find the following article on whether or not you should rent or buy your next home. Please visit the following link:http://usaa.us/2ZH1h2s .  Hope this information helps. - Ben
