Finance and money markets on Khan Academy: will it be always easier to get than rent? What if home costs rise dramatically and rents don’t? How can we compare home costs to rents to find out how to proceed. This older tutorial (low-res, bad handwriting) walks us through this. It really is about housing but comparable reasoning may be put on any rent-vs-buy choice (spoiler alert, Sal did eventually purchase a property).
