Bought to stay - yes. I gotta live somewhere...even in the great depression.
My wife and I say it all the time - we couldn't live any cheaper than we do. Other than moving into a crap neighborhood and downsizing the house. But for what we got, it doesn't get cheaper and thats locked in for 30 years.
All depends - if somebody offers me some insane amount of money then it will get very tempting not to sell and ride out the storm in a cheap zip code while sitting on a wad of cash. Time Will tell.
I am not sure about the 2017 depression. Too many variables. We'll see.
