Gap Between Renting and Buying Costs is Closing in U.S.

Sold Sign

The gap between renting and buying is narrowing across the U.S., down 8% from last year.

Home ownership is 38% cheaper than renting, although the numbers do vary slightly depending on your region.  Owning is only 5% cheaper than renting in Honolulu, but is 66% cheaper in Detroit.

Even though home prices have been on the rise, low mortgage rates have continued to make home ownership a better financial decision.

Owning a home will continue to be cheaper than renting until interest rates reach 10.6%.
