It is cheaper to buy then rent in the Nyacks, Rivertowns like Piermont, and Throughout all of rockland county from Stony Point to Suffern time is now... According to NPR this AM: "While it's been getting cheaper to own a home, it's actually been getting more expensive to rent a place to live. Gleb Nechayev is a housing economist with CBRE Econometric Advisors, a real estate research firm in Boston. Nechayev has a chart that shows the cost of owning a house compared to renting. Back in 2006, the cost-of-owning line on the chart was reaching its peak, but now the line has plunged down — like the cliff of a mountain. The Buy vs. Rent Ratio Over Time These days, the monthly cost of renting or buying a home is about the same. That one-to-one ratio is the lowest in 25 years. That's down from 2006, just before the housing market crashed, when the cost of owning was 46 percent higher than renting. "We are at the very bottom of that mountain right now and we have never seen that ratio so low," Nechayev says. Nechayev's data goes back to 1986. And he says since then, it's never been this cheap to own a house as compared to the cost of renting."
