Is It Cheaper to Rent vs. Buy?

Is Renting or Buying a better financial bet? Trulia says No! One young family in Litchfield County CT agrees!

dreamAlthough mortgage rates have risen in the past 6 months, home price gains have slowed. Trulia says “Buying a home now is 38% cheaper than renting an apartment.”

They caution that the gap may narrower if spring demand causes prices to rise faster than rents and if – as most economists expect – mortgage rates rise, due both to a strengthening economy and Fed tapering.

I working with a young couple now who, with a new baby, are looking for a real home. I’ve Pre-usda 3Approved them for a mortgage sufficient to buy $185,000 house with mortgage payment, tax and insurance escrow plus MI that is $150 less than their current rent.
The Bonus is that with a USDA Rural Housing Development loan, they just might be able to move in with 100% Financing and roll their closing costs into the loan amount That $1800 savings per year is a lot of diapers.
