Buying is Currently 53% Cheaper Than Renting

Buying is 33.1 Cheaper

Numbers don’t lie. The results show that homeownership remains cheaper than renting with a traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.


In 53 percent of the country’s housing markets, you’re better off buying than renting, according to ATTOM Data Solutions’ 2020 Rental Affordability Report, newly released. ATTOM compared 855 counties and assumed a median-priced, three-bedroom home and a median-priced, three-bedroom rental. The analysis incorporated recently released fair market rent data for 2020 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 66.3 percent of counties, the growth in home prices surpassed wages, the report shows. In 57 percent of counties, earnings growth outpaced rents.
