With Home Prices Dropping, In Many Parts of Moorpark It Is Cheaper to Own Than Rent

Ventura County CA – The good news about the housing bust is that home prices are now more affordable. It is now cheaper to buy versus renting in many areas.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

“At the peak of the real estate bubble, cities like Miami, Phoenix and Las Vegas were not affordable for many. Now the opposite is true,” said Pete Flint, co-founder and CEO of Trulia.com.

“Home sellers in these hard hit areas are forced to lower their prices to compete with all the foreclosures on the market. As a result , these unattainable markets are so affordable it makes better financial sense to buy than rent.”

Here is how to calculate whether it will be cheaper for you to buy versus rent.

First, add up what you are paying for rent now. Add together your rent payment and what you pay for renter’s insurance. That is the monthly cost of renting.

Now, let’s add up the cost of home ownership. First, you have the monthly mortgage payment. Add in Home Insurance, Property Taxes, and any Homeowner’s Association Fees.

Now, subtract out the tax savings. To calculate that, take what you will be paying monthly for interest and property taxes. Multiply that by your combined state and federal tax rate.

That is your projected tax savings. Now you have the cost of homeownership and renting side by side to compare. This is good news if you are a home owner. Why? It means that we are closer to a real estate recovery.
