It explains quite neatly how the homeownership frenzy of 2005-2006 didn’t work out, then jumps to the conclusion that owning your home must be a Really Bad Idea.

Two problems with that:
* If you intend to pay $12k a year of rent in retirement, rather than the $6k it might cost to own that property, you will need to arrange an additional ~$8k of income (necessarily adjusted for inflation). At the present payout rates, we’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars of additional savings, just to pay the rent. Is your typical renter saving that kind of money?

* Renting isn’t really cheaper than owning long-term, or landlords would all go broke. Most calculators skew the results by assuming an ownership period of less than a decade (over which time the buying/selling costs dominate). Also, rented properties are generally inferior to those that are owner-occupied. E.g. the “cardboard bungalow” cited in the article.

Is it just me, or does this take most of the air out of the rest of the story?
