Trulia came out with a report on home ownership and its quality of investment with a shocking statement that “buying is cheaper than renting in 100 of the largest metro areas by an average of 33.1%.”

While this statement can almost stand alone, Trulia also outlined five other reasons that owning was a more quality investment than renting:

1) Mortgage payments can stay the same and in your control while rent is based on the discretion of a landlord

2) Equity in your home can be used as a financial asset later

3) You can build wealth while living in your home

4) A mortgage is like a forced savings account leading you to a home

5) The wealth growth, overall, is more than you would get if you were renting

Home-buying isn’t for everyone, but why don’t you talk to a local real estate agent and decide if home-buying is or isn’t for you?
