Buying A Home Is 36 Less Expensive Than Renting Nationwide

Buying a Home is 36% Less Expensive Than Renting Nationwide!

by The KCM Crew on April 19, 2016

In the latestRent vs. Buy ReportfromTrulia, they explained that homeownership remains cheaper than renting with a traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage in the 100 largest metro areas in the United States.

The updated numbers actually show that the range is an average of 5% less expensive

in Orange County (CA) all the way up to 46% in Houston (TX), and 36% Nationwide!


Other interesting findings in the report include:

Interest rates have remained low and even though home prices have appreciated around the country, they haven’t greatly outpaced rental appreciation.

Some markets may tip in favor of renting if home prices increase at a greater rate than rents and if – as most economists expect – mortgage rates rise, due to the strengthening economy.

Nationally, rates would have to rise to 10.6% for renting to be cheaper than buying – and rates haven’t been that high since 1989.

Bottom Line

Buying a home makes sense socially andfinancially. If you are one of the many renters out there who would like to evaluate your ability to buy this year, meet with a local real estate professional who can help you find your dream home.
