It is interesting you mention Warren Buffett. I think he is a political shill, but occasionally he lets the truth slip out. In one interview he recommended that people buy a house because he said it was the best way for the average person to short the $US dollar. This exposed his view on the current US Monetary policy rather than his belief in owning property.

As far as I know, he still only owns one house which is the first one he bought in the 1950’s.
You are really seeing too much into something that's not really there. I doubt he cared about politics or knew how macro economics worked in his younger days in 1950's when he was just a regular joe, though somewhat exceptional kind of regular joe.
But look at what the house did for the man ? The house allowed him a base to build his billions. In the mean time, you are probably wasting your life going from rental to rental hoping to find the right kind of neighbours. The simple fact is in rentals, you will always get a bunch of monkeys.
