Rent vs. BuyI was checking out a home for rent in the bubbling market in Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and Saratoga in the SF Bay area. The property owner wanted $5500/month - she indicated that home prices were up and rents were rising (I believe I will get a similar home for $4500 soon).But it got me thinking. In real estate we do not consider the fact that most people cannot borrow money from the bank to rent their home. This is where the myth of ever increasing rents fail.August 25 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
