Young professionals are better off buying a home than renting one, but it’s not nearly the deal it was three years ago.
Buying is 44 percent cheaper than renting in Broward County, according to Trulia.com, a real estate website. That’s tied with Syracuse, N.Y., for the nation’s third-highest difference, after Houston (46 percent) and Baton Rouge, La. (45).
In 2012, with home prices rebounding from the bottom, buying beat renting in Broward by 56 percent.
