Is it financially better to buy a home or to rent? The answer to this question depends upon how much the home costs, how much you are paying for rent, and how much you will have to pay each year in order to maintain your home.

If you were to pay $900.00 per month, for example, and the average rental payment increase was 2.000%, you would pay $56,203.63 in a 5 year period toward rent. If you purchased a home and borrowed $213,750.00 with a 5.000% interest rate, and you paid $900.00 every year toward its maintenance, you would pay $68,807.19 in a 5 year period toward mortgage payments.

When you consider the appreciation of your home, you will actually SAVE money by purchasing a home. If your home shows an annual appreciation of 4.000% and your selling cost is 5.000%, your house appreciation value will be $273,746.90. As a result, your total home purchase benefit will amount to $46,630.60.
