service to pay down their own principal while households that rent pay down the
principal of a landlord plus a rate of return. That’s yet another reason owning
often does—as Americans intuit—end up making more financial sense than
Also, if you purchase with a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, your
‘housing expense’ is locked in over the thirty years for the most part. If you
rent, the one guarantee you will have is that your rent will increase over that
