Why should I buy a home rather than rent?

Paying a mortgage payment each month for your home can be as affordable as renting, and in some part of the United States, it can be more affordable to own rather than rent. Borrowers can compare costs by researching home prices in the areas they want to live, calculate what a mortgage loan would cost them, and compare that to the cost of renting a similar type of home.

The biggest advantages of owning a home, rather than renting, are building equity and earning tax advantages. Borrowers can build their wealth as they gain more equity over the course of time, and there are several tax breaks for homeowners.
