What Does Affordability Mean?

ATTOM calculates the amount of income a consumer would need to cover major monthly home ownership expenses such as mortgage, property taxes and insurance on a median-priced single-family home.  ATTOM assumes a 20% down payment and a 28% maximum “front end” debt-to-income ratio.

ATTOM then compares that required income to annualized weekly wage data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
