Buying a Home Remains 35% Less Expensive than Renting! | Simplifying The Market
[:en]In the latest Rent vs. Buy Report from Trulia, they explained that homeownership remains cheaper than renting with a traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage throughout the 100 largest metro areas in the United States.

The updated numbers actually show that the range is from an average of 16% in Honolulu (HI), all the way to 55% in Sarasota (FL), and 35% Nationwide!

The 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. “In the past year, these two trends have made homeownership even more affordable compared with renting.”
  • Some markets might 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 and financially. Rents are predicted to increase substantially in the next year, lock in your housing cost with a mortgage payment now.[:es]En el último informe de Trulia ‘Alquilar Vs. Comprar’, Ellos explicaron que ser propietario de casa sigue siendo más barato que alquilar con una tasa hipotecaria fija a 30 años tradicional, a lo largo de las 100 áreas metropolitanas más grandes en los Estados Unidos.

¡Los números actualizados en realidad demuestran que la gama es de un promedio de 16 % en Honolulu (HI), hasta el 55 % en Sarasota (FL), y 35 % a nivel nacional!

Los otros resultados interesantes en el informe incluyen:

  • Las tasas de interés se han mantenido bajas, aun cuando los precios de las casas han apreciado alrededor del país, no han superado grandemente la apreciación del alquiler. “El año pasado, estas dos tendencias han hecho que el ser propietario de casa sea más asequible en comparación con el alquiler”.
  • Algunos mercados podrían inclinarse a favor de alquilar, si los precios de las casas aumentan a un ritmo mayor que el alquiler y si – como la mayoría de los economistas esperan – las tasas hipotecarias aumentan, debido al fortalecimiento de la economía.
  • A nivel nacional, las tasas tendrían que aumentar a 10.6 % para que alquilar sea más barato que comprar – y las tasas no han estado tan altas desde 1989.

En conclusión

Comprar una casa tiene sentido social y financiero. Se predice que los alquileres van a aumentar sustancialmente el próximo año, asegure su gasto de la vivienda con el pago de una hipoteca ahora.[:]
