I recently wrote a book on Canada's real estate "Personal Finance 101 Canada's Housing Market Analysis Buying vs Renting a Home: A Case Study". A part of the book is the discussion of the market trends (forward-looking) and the second part is a case study that evaluates the two options - Buying vs Renting. The analysis can be applied to any two comparable properties in Canada.

I used a five-year investment horizon and discounted cashflows from the two options to derive a numerical answer to evaluate the options.
Are there any opinions on how the two options can be evaluated numerically?
