It’s not what you think -- you almost can’t find a headline with the term “housing affordability” without the word “crisis”
attached to it. That’s because some only consider the fact that residential real estate prices have continued to appreciate.
But it’s not just the price of a home that matters, but the price relative to a purchaser’s buying power.
Most people buy homes with a mortgage. The current mortgage rate is a major component of the affordability equation.
Mortgage rates have fallen by over a full percentage point since December 2018. Another major piece of the affordability
equation is a buyer’s income. The median family income has risen by 3.5% over the last year. Combined, these reveal that homes

Have You Outgrown Your Home?
It may seem hard to imagine that the home you’re in today – whether it’s your starter home or just one you’ve fallen in love with along the way – might not be your forever home.

It’s ‘National Roof Over Your Head’ Day!
Did you know that each year in the United States, we celebrate “National Roof Over Your Head Day” on December 3rd?
As noted on the National Calendar, it was “created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head. There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.”
From bungalows to cottages, and farmhouses to treehouses, today we show our appreciation and gratitude for the places we call home. Owning the roof that shelters us is something many renters still aspire to, knowing there are so many financial and non-financial benefits to homeownership.
According to the 2019 State of the Nation’s Housing from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University,
“Cost-burdened renters now outnumber cost-burdened homeo ...
