It is Cheaper to Rent a Home than Own in South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCOwning a home is often considered the American dream — and it's an expensive one. Homeowners in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., pay from 33% to 93% more for housing each month than do renters living in the same state.

But many homeowners reap benefits that you can't get from renting, such as financial security and stability, tax deductions, and a vehicle for retirement savings. 

While renting can't offer those long-term financial benefits, the study found that it's cheaper to rent on a month-to-month basis. If you're wondering how to save money for a down payment, renting can help you build that nest egg. However, in extremely expensive or competitive markets renting might be better for the long haul.

To determine the monthly homeownership premium — the additional cost of owning instead of renting, expressed as a percentage — NerdWallet compared 2015 American Community Survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau for the median gross rent and median homeownership cost in each state and Washington, D.C. Median gross rent includes the costs of monthly rent and utilities for all kinds of rental properties, and median homeownership cost includes monthly mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance and utilities.

This comparison doesn't include the down payment required to buy a home, which is traditionally 20% of the home price for conventional mortgages.

Key takeaways

Owning is more expensive everywhere. Across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., it costs more each month to own a home than to rent. The median cost people pay nationwide to own a home is 54% more than the median cost of monthly rent.

In some states, the cost of owning far eclipses renting.

In South Carolina it costs 43% more to own vs. rent each month!

Many High Earners are Renting Instead of Buying

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 06, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCThe Fastest Growing Group of Renters: It May Surprise You

So you think you have the average American renter all figured out—that they're a group of young, unsettled, commitmentphobic folks, just starting out and scraping by? Well, you might want to widen out that picture a bit. The reality: The fastest-growing group of new renters includes those aged 50 or older, or younger folks raking in six-figure salaries, according to a new report.

This is a tale of the haves—who could afford to buy a home, but choose not to—and the have-nots, who don't make enough money to become homeowners. And although overall rental prices are starting to level off, and in some cases even dip a little, there still aren't nearly enough affordable rentals to meet the overwhelming demand from lower-income renters.

The new renter: Older and wealthier than you'd expect

Overall, renters had a median age of 40 in 2016—up from 38 in 2016. (In comparison, homeowners are a median 56.) That's because more baby boomers, whose kids have flown the coop, are downsizing out of their large, suburban homes and opting for maintenance-free rentals instead. No more mowing the lawn and shoveling snow for them! That's pushing up the median age of all renters.

More folks earning some serious dough are also choosing to rent rather than buy. About 13.3% of renter households made more than $100,000 in 2016. That's up from 9% in 2006.

That's partly because some high earners are saddled with high student debt loads, making it difficult to cobble together a down payment. In addition, more-walkable cities, many of which have undergone attractive revitalizations, have also become desirable places to live. So those with means are willing to lease a unit in a newly constructed community with luxe amenities.
