Is it Better to Buy or Rent in Houston


According to a new housing affordability report, Houstonians are better off buying (or building) a home than renting. In fact, Houston is one of the best cities on the country for anyone hoping to making the switch from renting to buying as our city ranks #2 among 34 cities offering the largest amount of savings when switching from renting a home to purchasing one.

On average, Houstonians spend 12.3% of their monthly income on a mortgage payment in comparison to the 30.6% Houstonians spend on their rent payments. Additionally, nationally the average American spends 15% of their monthly income on a mortgage payment, whereas they spend, on average, 30.2% on a rent payment. These numbers are proof that most Americans can save money by switching from renting to buying their home.
