Is it better to pay off student loans quickly or to save up for a down payment for a house?

A Nerd Wallet reader asked: Is it better to pay off student loans quickly or to save up for a down payment for a house? My reply: The only way I'm in favor of you buying a house is if it's a multifamily unit and you generate some rental income. Otherwise, a single family home is just an expense and an anvil for a 30-year-old.
