Is the Leica an "Investment?"
The others said what I would have said. The only other thing I would add that after say 10 years of renting, that house will most likely not be $600,000 any longer, even in a terrible market like right now, the prices won't drop long term and the 600,000 house is now $800,000 or more.
Anyway if you don't understand you won't agree and I wish you luck with renting.
