The rent-to-mortgage payment ratio uses the adjusted market rent against a 100% loan-to-value mortgage (30-year fixed) for the median price home using MLS sales statistics. A ratio of 1.0 means that annual rent is equivalent to annual mortgage payments. Values less than 1.0 indicate rents MSe cheaper, and values greater than 1.0 mean mortgage payments MSe cheaper. (Note: taxes MSe not considered here.)
