Based on data from the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices and the US Consumer Price Index, we show a chart of relative costs of renting or buying a home and the impact of inflation on home prices. Buying is slightly favored over renting compared to the average since 1987 for the S&P/Case-Shiller 10-City Composite. In inflation adjusted or real terms, home prices are back to where they were in about 2000.
