DOES IT EVER MAKE SENSE TO RENT A HOUSE?

It usually pays to buy only if you expect to stay in a house at least three to four years. Consider the purchase of a $20,000 house with a $4,000 down payment and a 20-year, six per cent mortgage of $16,000. Closing costs come to $400, say, on top of the purchase price. Mortgage payments are $115 a month, and about $50 a month goes for property taxes and insurance, plus an estimated $30 a month for upkeep and repairs. That's $195 a month in ownership costs, or $2,340 a year.
