    [OC] Complete US Home Affordability, by County (2023-2024)

    I created a similar graphic a few weeks ago; this improved version now accounts for current local property taxes, home insurance, and interest rates.

    What does the percentage mean?

    Median local home ownership costs divided by median local household income (HHI).

    More specifically, this housing cost is a monthly mortgage payment using a median county level home value (with a 20% down payment and 7.19% interest rate). Local property taxes and home insurance are also added to this mortgage payment.

    What is considered affordable?

    Traditionally, housing is considered affordable if it is less than 30% of income (green or blue). Using this metric, 27% of people live in affordable counties.

    Nowadays, more and more people are spending 30%-40% of income on housing (light yellow) which I'd consider unaffordable without making serious sacrifices in other areas. Almost 40% of people live in these areas alone.

    Any places above 40% (light orange to dark red) mean the median home is unaffordable on median local income. About 33% of people live in areas with unaffordable home ownership costs. People that own homes in these areas likely bought them years ago with lower prices/rates, inherited them from family, or make well above median income.
