Rent Vs. Buy Calculator

At J.G. Wentworth, we aim to make the homebuying process as accessible and transparent as possible. That is why we provide resources like our rent vs. buy calculator to help you better understand your options. Renting and buying each come with their own benefits and drawbacks. The better you understand these differences, the more prepared you will be.

When you buy a property, you typically gain equity over time. If you keep up with your monthly mortgage payments, you will eventually own your home. In contrast, if you rent your living space, you will never build this equity. Our calculator takes the different costs associated with each option into account so that you have a better idea of how they could impact your finances.

Our calculator takes into account different taxes, maintenance costs, insurance policies, fees, and utility bills. Before making any kind of decision about your living arrangements, it is best to know exactly where your money is going. Our rent vs. buy calculator will assist you with making an informed decision as you plan for your future.
