Rent vs. Buy Calculator

Today there are different schools of thought on whether renting or owning a home is a better way to go. While renting has its advantages, the cost of renting is rising along with demand. This not only makes home ownership more appealing, but there is nothing like living in your own home – free to landscape, decorate and care for in your own unique way.

Having helped hundreds of families to find their dream home, I know firsthand how special home ownership can be. It is a rewarding, life-changing experience. But don’t take my word for it. Do the math. Decide for yourself – renting or buying – using this calculator at, a great resource for consumers.

Have questions? Uncertain about which way to go? Give me a call. I’m happy to consult with you and offer my thoughts on your situation.

Good luck!
