The Cost of Renting vs. Buying a Home

The cost of renting vs. buying

Some Highlights:

  • Historically, the choice between renting or buying a home has been a tough decision.
  • Looking at the percentage of income needed to rent a median-priced home today (29.2%) vs. the percentage needed to buy a median-priced home (15.8%), the choice becomes obvious.
  • Every market is different. Before you renew your lease again, find out if you can put your housing costs to work by buying this year!

      If I were to choose, I would rather buy a house than to rent, as I know that my money is going to an investment.
