The Meadows Castle Rock CO | Buying Remains Cheaper Than Renting in 39 States!

At the local level in Castle Rock, Colorado, buyer confidence remains strong and inventory of homes for sale remains low.

This is particularly true in and around The Meadow’s 80109 zip code.  The addition of the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, desirable schools, the new I-25 exit/entrance ramp and new stores and businesses make The Meadows one of the busiest areas in Castle Rock.

Today I would like to discuss why Buying Remains Cheaper Than Renting in 39 States!

According to the most recent Rent vs. Buy Report from Trulia, homeownership remains cheaper than renting with a traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage in the 100 largest metro areas. Colorado is no exception!

The numbers show the range is an average of 3.5% less expensive in San Jose (CA), all the way up to 50.1% less expensive in Baton Rouge (LA), and 33.1% nationwide!

A study by GoBankingRates looked at the cost of renting vs. owning a home at the state level.  It concluded that in 39 states, it is actually ‘a little’ or ‘a lot’ cheaper to own (represented by the 2 shades of blue in the map below).  Colorado is considered “A LOT” cheaper to buy than rent.

A big reason owning a home has remained significantly cheaper than renting is the fact that interest rates have remained at or near historic lows.

Nationally, rates would have to reach 9.1%, a 128% increase over today’s average of 4.0%, for renting to be cheaper than buying. Rates haven’t been that high since January of 1995, according to Freddie Mac.
