This article is part of the Ask the M-Network series. Sheila asks:
We’re selling our house and moving to a new city. With the real estate market in such a downturn, would it be wiser to rent for awhile until either the market gets better or we can decided upon a house we know we’ll want to stay in for awhile?

Using the new Ask the M-Network feature, a reader submitted a question asking about whether it was cheaper to use propane or electric appliances. The question was from Lynnea (no, not Lynnae from from Being Frugal), and she wrote:
