Rent/Buy Worksheet from Inman Column

I got a couple of requests via email/DM for this so…

This is the rent-buy worksheet I used while writing my latest Inman column (subscription required).  I took it from Khan Academy and then modified it.  Feel free to point out errors, etc. right in the comments, and I’ll modify what I can. 🙂

Rent/Buy Analysis Worksheet (Right-click, and “Save Link As…”)

Enjoy!
