We have talked about this before. Here is the most recent information if you are currently renting and trying to decide if it time to buy a home or not.

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 (27.7%) vs. the percentage needed to buy a median-priced home (17.5%), 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!
