Well it should! It’s been on Burbed twice now. Like… yesterday!

According to this web calculator, using the default settings and assuming you have $140,000 cash on hand, buying this house would require a $4630.23 per month payment. Remember that renting this is only $2000 a month.
That’s fine you say – after all, renting is throwing away money. Home ownership is good because it mean that you’re a real person and not a nobody – just like having a car in high school.
Except for this little statement by the website calculator:
Your home purchase does not breakeven after 30 years.
Oh. Well. In that case. Uh.
