What does that mean?
This calculator compares the return on investment of an amount of money ready to be invested according to two possible scenarios:
1. You decide to buy
Your initial amount represents your total down payment invested on a mortgage loan.
Your investment amount is the total property value.
2. You decide to rent
You investment is equal to the down payment + every month, the difference between the buying costs and the renting costs go in your pockets. Monthly costs for a property are generally greater than those for a rent.
|Rent or Mortgage||Rent||Mortgage payment|
|Property related expenses||Insurance, heating costs||Condo fees, maintenance and heating fees, insurance and taxes|
|Monthly savings||Purchase monthly expenses –Renting monthly expenses||Non applicable|
|Your financial value after xx years; when it’s profitable for you to own the place rather than renting it.||Your return on investment = the invested amount + your monthly savings||Refunded amount on your house + down payment + property market value growth|
|Your financial value after 25 years||Your return on investment = the invested amount + your monthly savings||The mortgage is finally paid! Your property market value.|
