Re: Is it preferable to buy a house instead of renting one, even if you're not sure y

you can buy if the mortgage rate + 6% is less than what you can rent the house for.

e.g. your question mortgage = rent, then x% + 6% > x% => no buy

mortgage 2% and rent 10%, then 2% + 6% < 10% => ok to buy*

*assuming other factors are met
Does this account for your loss of income from the deposit? Although you could argue in these negative rate times that having your money either in an account or invested in a house is a wash?
