The Misleading Math Behind the Rent vs. Buy Calculation

30-year-mortgage-build-wealth-628x354

 

“While studies simulating the financial returns to owning and renting find that renting is often more likely to be beneficial, in practice renters rarely accumulate any wealth. In no small part this seems traceable to the difficulties households face in trying to save absent either a clear goal or an automatic savings mechanism.”

When it comes to selling a house, appearances count. That’s why more and more homeowners hoping to wow buyers will hire a home stager—a magician-like professional who swoops in with stylish furniture you’d never own, blandly tasteful modern art you’d never hang, and an undeniable flair for organization, and makes your place look, well, picture-perfect. It’s the stuff that full-asking-price offers are made of.
