THIS is Becoming a BIG Problem for the US Housing Market

Selling Real Estate
Housing affordability in the United States is at the lowest levels since at least January 1989 (i.e. at least a 34 year low). This is because home prices and mortgage rates still remain very high. More importantly though, the qualifying income to purchase a median priced home has increased by 106% over the past 3 years compared to only a 7% gain in US median family income over that same time period (July 2020 – July 2023). This is based on my own analysis of the National Association of Realtors data.

Also, to give you a mortgage rate update, average 30 year fixed mortgage rates for borrowers with exceptional credit decreased slightly to 7.22% on Friday 9/8/23. That’s a 1.2 percentage point increase from one year ago. This is according to the Mortgage News Daily. Because mortgage rates have been on the rise since July, home affordability will likely fall to a new record low once August’s numbers are released from NAR.
