Wisconsin Home Affordability Index is at 291!

March 21, 2013

Look how high the Wisconsin Housing Affordability Index is! The index is calculated on the relationship between median home price, median family income and average effective mortgage interest rate. The higher the index, the stronger household purchasing power.


An index of 100 is defined as the point where a median-income household has exactly enough income to qualify for the purchase of a median-priced home, assuming a 20% downpayment and 25% of gross income devoted to mortgage interest and principal payments.

Wisconsin Housing Affordability Index is 291
