According to realtor.com, 81% of US cities have been more affordable in 2019 than they were in 2018. Affordability is particularly rising in mid-sized cities in the South and Midwest where economies and job markets are strong and where there are large supplies of median priced homes ($312,000).

George Ratiu, realtor.com’s chief economist, said, “Mortgage rates are much lower than they were and incomes have actually gown this year. For most Americans, these two things combined have led to an improvement in affordability for home buyers.”
