In general, homeowners in the same market pay the same amount as renters do for residential services. That is a consumption expense in both cases, but homeowners undertake an additional expense -- an investment expense by which they acquire an asset that they hope will appreciate in value.

It's not a coherently stated question. The right to expect a reply has not been earned. As you may not understand here, what C-CPI-U is chained over is time periods.

Every time you go through these mental gymnastics to paint yourself as a victim all it does is make it clear that you've never owned a home and have zero understanding of the costs of home ownership.

Your answer here is no, by the way.

Homeowners pay same as renters = consumption expense

Homeowners also undertake an investment expense = pay zero for this ?????
