Buying or Renting---what to do

The cost difference between buying and renting is as narrow as it has been since 1993, according to a study on homeownership by Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services for the Associated Press.
      The study examined rent and home prices in 45 metropolitan areas and concluded that gap between a payment on a median-priced home and median rent on a similar property is on average only $256.
      Marcus & Millichap calculated the number using median home prices for the last three months of 2009, assuming a 10 percent down payment on a 30-year fixed-rate loan at 5.07 percent.
      It factored in mortgage insurance, but didn't include either repair costs or tax benefits.
