Buy vs. Rent

Home ownership is still cheaper than renting in most places across the country, including San Francisco, but that would likely change as interest rates rise. It's cheaper to buy than rent in San Francisco if you plan to stay in the purchased home for seven years and itemize deductions. However, this would tip in favor of renting, at least in our city, by the time interest rates hit 6%. [Propertywire]
