The Cost of Renting vs. Buying This Spring [INFOGRAPHIC] | MyKCM

Some Highlights:

  • Historically, the choice between renting or buying a home has been a tough decision.

  • Every market is different. Before you renew your lease again, find out if you can put your housing costs to work by buying this year!
