This calculator can help you to compare the costs of renting to the costs of buying a home. Because there are other factors to consider, (interest, property taxes, tax savings, appreciation, opportunity costs, closing costs, selling costs, etc.) it is complicated to compare the cost of renting to the cost of buying. This calculator attempts to take all of these factors into consideration in order for you to make an informed decision.
