Buying More Affordable Than Renting in Most U.S. Markets

Buying a home is now more affordable than renting in the majority of U.S housing markets, according to a recent report from RealtyTrac.

According to the article from CNNMoney:
"Purchasing a median-priced home was more affordable than renting a three-bedroom home in 68% of the 473 counties analyzed by RealtyTrac. On average, renters are expected to spend 27% of their median household income on payments to landlords next year. Meanwhile, becoming a homeowner will require an average of 25% of income to cover the mortgage."
