    Would you rather have a nice house or a nice car?

    I have found people who are not as concerned with their clothes/car etc (appearance) than they are with having a nice house and I have met people would would rather have a better appearance than house.  Which are you?

    You hang your hat at home, not in your car.

    Nice house, as long as I could afford it.  Nothing gives pleasure, car or house if you can't afford it.

    Nice house. It is home where you sleep, where you spend most of your time.

    a house is more important mainly because it is a place for my family to live.

    As someone who spends more time at home than anywhere else, I'd definately rather have a nice house.  It doesn't have to be lavish or anything, just homey and full of love. 

    Although, I've always wanted a convertable to drive around in the summer with the top down.  Really not so practical though for a "mom taxi."

    First choice is obviously house, and it will have a garage so I can keep my nice car...

    I'd rather have a nice house, as I spend much more time in my house than in my car.  I only have a three mile drive to work, so a nice car would almost be a waste.  Besides, a car is more likely to be damaged on the road then a house is just sitting there, so the house would stay nice longer.

    I prefer a nice house because most of my time will be spent in my home. A nice car will impress people for a minute and its all over after that. You have nothing left after they say ahhhh! A nice home is a mini escape from the outside world and you have all the comforts a person could imagine for as long as you pay the mortgage.

    I am more for the house than the  car.  I drive my older car to work and it is just the work car pretty much.  I am more concerned with being able to relax and enjoy myself at home.  My friends know what I am about and for those who decide something about me from me being out and about running errands too bad.

    I am just shocked by the amount of people I know that drive a nice car and have nice clothes, but when I find out where they live - it is a complete disaster.  How is bad, unkept, and just in disrepair.  I wonder why they take such care of their car and what they look like, but then turn around and don't take care of where they live and where the people who really matter - friends and family- congregate. 

    I have always taken it for granted that it matters that my friends and family are comfortable instead of people thinking I have money.  And it has shocked me that it seems to be some people's driving motivation is their appearance.

    Definitely a nice house. A nice car impresses people for a short time, until the new models come out. A house can impress and be lived in for 30, 40 and more years if maintained!

    It depends on the person. If you love to move around, then a nice car is for you. If you're the type of a person who likes to settle down, then a nice house is the right choice. Additionally, according to my observation (as far as my country is concerned), more men prefer a car, while more women prefer a house. As for me, a nice house is what I've always wanted.

    I'd definitely go for a nice house. It's far more important than revving up in a swanky car.

    A nice house. I already have a nice car.
