Higher Home Prices Does Not Mean Unaffordable

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

It is a very  difficult concept to wrap around but todays home prices are 'Less Affordable', to those prices of only a few years ago, but not 'Unaffordable'.  

Sandpoint Realty LLC - Debt to Income

More needs to be taken into account than just the price of the home.  Interest Rates and personal income being two critical factors that determine a homes affordability.  One must remember that the monthly cost of a home is the bottom line we must look at.


Don't let todays home prices scare you off.  Ask your Real Estate representative for help and to answer questions you may have regarding purchasing or selling a home.

Hello Mark - it's all relative, isn't it?  Especially affordability.  So many factors come into play.  Such a discussion is a good conversation-starter.

Lower interest rates often ofset the impact of higher prices.  It's a balancing act.
