Air tools or electric?

I recently bought a foreclosure in bad shape and I need to do many jobs. It's my first house and I dont much tools. I'm looking to start buying tools. My first big job will be removing 700 sqf of ceramic flooring. Would it be better to buy an Air Hammer/Chisel & a compressor or buy an electric rotary hammer?

The air tool seems cheaper and it would justify buying a compressor that can be used for many other jobs.

go with a electric hammer, a air hammer will need atleast a 25 gallon compresor to run the tool
grex nailers are amazing, there a leader but not available in every store. .my next 18 gauge is going to be the $220 grex green buddy
