Own my home; my office is in my home so I guess I "own" it. Lease my vehicles--makes more tax sense for me.

Both rent & own real estate, West Los Angeles home is a rental. I do own several vehicles.

(Leasing can be beneficial in some situations, has to do with the overall situation and sometimes, for those bean counter or investors types, the "time value" of money comes into play)

When I was actively selling, my accountant recommended I lease my vehicle which I did.  Now I buy because I buy vehicles I like to keep.  My current car is 9 years old... still looks and runs great.  It won't be replaced until necessary.

Definitely own your home. Rent your office, likely, but it depends. Car (the business car for RE), lease. I'm not a tax accountant, but my car expert and my accountant said to lease, and my car is owned by my company, not me.

Lease was depreciates. Buy what appreciates.

No. I own my home, my office, and my car. I think car payments are one of the greatest killers of a family budget. And why would a real estate agent sell people on the benefits of home ownership but not own their own home and/or office?

Of course you should own your home,to build up your net worth and equity,that's if you don't use your home like an ATM. Why own...simple....with the current tax laws the interest on the mortgage and R/E Taxes are deductible. Rent? I tell my borrowers if you are paying rent....add up the total rent you paid for the year, then go to the bank and take out that amount of money and drive around and throw it out your car window. . Car...lease. why? because it has no "appreciative" value. As for office, that is a toss up, because in that case you can deduct the rent as a business expense.
