u003cp>The U.S. is a tale of two real estate markets right now. In two-thirds of the country, buying a home is more affordable than renting. But the opposite is true in the most populous metropolitan areas.u003c/p> u003cp>That’s according to ATTOM Data Solutions, which recently released its u003ca href="https://www.attomdata.com/news/market-trends/home-sales-prices/attom-data-solutions-2021-rental-affordability-report/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SEO-News+Updates">2021 Rental Affordability Reportu003c/a>.

According to ATTOM's analysis, renting is now more affordable than buying in 18 of the 25 most populous counties in the U.S. The same is true in 29 of the 44 counties with a population of 1 million people are more.
