Cost of Home Ownership (Example - Continued)
Second Subtract the tax savings from the total expenses: \$13,709 Total expenses - \$1,428 Tax Reductions \$12,281 Net cost for the first year

Check For Understanding (Solution A)

Check For Understanding (Solution B)
What will be the net cost of the home the first year? Add all the expenses: \$5,788 + \$1,904 + \$347 + \$1,140 + (.02 x \$87,000) + \$900 + \$1,860 = \$13,679 Subtract the tax savings \$13,679 - \$1,050 = \$12,629

Costs of Property Rental
Advantages No down payment Earn interest on down payment More predictable major housing costs Disadvantages No federal income tax benefit Security Deposit – without guarantee on return. Sign a lease or rental agreement

Costs of Property Rental (Example)
May plans to rent an apartment for \$710/ month includes heat and water. Security deposit is 1 months rent. Other annual costs equal = Insurance \$110 Utilities \$600 Covered parking space \$ 240 What is the total first year cost of renting this apartment? How much is it per month?

Costs of Property Rental (Solution)
What is the total first year cost of renting this apartment? # of months per year x monthly rent = yearly rent 12 x \$710 = \$8,520 Add all annual costs + yearly rent = Total 1st year costs. \$8,520 + \$710 + \$110 + \$600 + \$240 = \$10,180

Costs of Property Rental (Solution)
How much is it per month? Total 1st year costs / 12 = monthly costs \$10,180/12 = \$848.33

Check For Understanding (Solution C)
What was the cost of renting the apartment for the one year? # of months per year x monthly rent = yearly rent 12 x \$625 = \$7,500 Add all annual costs + yearly rent = Total 1st year costs. \$7,500 + \$625 + \$85 + \$1,210 + \$10 = \$9,430

Comparing Renting and Owning Homes (Question & Solution 2)
Is it less expensive to rent or buy the home? What is the difference? 1. Find the net cost of renting (annual rent) 12 x cost/month = annual rent 12 x \$850 = \$10,200 Annual costs + annual rent = cost of renting \$10,200 + \$1,200 + \$130 +\$1,400 = \$12,930
