What’s New? Buying a median-priced, three-bedroom home was more affordable than renting in only 53% of the 855 counties analyzed across the U.S., making renting in the other counties the more affordable option.....according to a recent report by Attom Data Solutions. While it may be true that total out-of-pocket monthly costs are sometimes cheaper when renting, often these reports omit one tiny - but important - detail: EQUITY BUILDING.
