Investopedia explains 'Breakeven Price'
Breakeven prices can be translated to almost any transcation. For example, the breakeven price of a house would be the sale price the owner would need to get to cover the home's purchase price, interest paid on the mortgage, hazard insurance, property taxes, maintenance, improvements, closing costs and real estate sales commission. At this price, the homeowner would not see any profit, but also would not lose any money.
