Buying vs. Renting?

 

AND THE WINNER IS . . .

Is it better to buy or rent?  Whether renting is better than buying depends on many factors.  Low mortgage rates are helping to keep home buying more affordable.  According to one analysis homeownership is 38% cheaper than renting in the 100 largest metro areas.

 

Assuming the following:

  • Buy a home with 20% down, borrowing the rest over 30 years at a fixed rate of 4.5%.
  • Itemize your federal tax deductions and are in the 25% tax bracket
  • Stay in your home for at least seven years
  • Home prices appreciate at a fairly conservative 2% annual rate
