Homeownership vs Renting: Behind the Numbers


In this episode, Lauryn and Chloé are showing behind the numbers of renting vs buying a home. While many people think they are going to save money if they buy a house instead of paying rent, that’s not always the case. You will learn the important things to think about and what the numbers really look like.

In this episode, Lauryn and Chloé talk about:

  • The real costs of buying a house
  • ​How being approved for a mortgage doesn’t necessarily mean you can afford it
  • ​Why “new construction” doesn’t mean no additional maintenance expenses
  • ​Why your mortgage payment may not stay the same for 30 years
  • ​Things to consider before deciding to buy a house
  • ​The expenses involved in selling a house
  • ​The importance of thinking about your other expenses and goals when thinking about homeownership
