Attention Shoppers: The Time to Buy is Nigh

March 26th, 2012

In an rent vs. buy index of the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the nation, Trulia has determined it is a wiser decision to buy in 98 of them. The top ten cities where buying a home is a better deal: Detroit, Oklahoma City, Dayton Ohio, Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills Michigan, Toledo Ohio, Grand Rapids Michigan, Cleveland, Atlanta, Gary Indiana, and Memphis. The top ten where renting is smarter: Honolulu, San Francisco, New York City, San Jose California, Orange County CA, Los Angeles, San Diego, Colorado Springs CO, Boston, and Albuquerque NM. Trulia compares neighborhoods and properties, and then calculates the ratio between asking prices for rentals and for-sale homes to arrive at its conclusion. Based in San Francisco, Trulia tells MHProNews.com it  collects information and maintains unique files on desireable places to live through its many contacts with real estate professionals.
