Rent

$365,464

Total Paid Over 10 Years

The national average rent for a single-family house is currently $2,018 per month. With a projected increase of 8.86% per year, after 10 years, your rent would increase to $4,332 per month. This means that after 10 years, your total rent paid would be  $365,464.

 

For example, for a loan amount of $411,000, 30-year fixed rate loan at 6% (6.075% APR) with Loan-to-Value of 97%, your monthly payment will be $2,464*. In 10 years, your payment will remain $2,464 per month, and the total paid on your home loan would be $295,680. That is a savings of $69,784.
