December 2018 Housing Affordability Index

At the national level, housing affordability is up from last month but down from a year ago. Mortgage rates were unchanged from last month at 4.99 percent this December, and up 18.2 percent compared to 4.22 percent a year ago.

  • Housing affordability declined from a year ago in December moving the index down 8.4 percent from 161.2 to 147.6. The median sales price for a single family home sold in December in the US was $256,400 up 3.4 percent from a year ago.
  • Nationally, mortgage rates were up 77 basis point from one year ago (one percentage point equals 100 basis points).
  • The payment as a percentage of income was down from last month at 16.9 percent this December and up from 15.5 percent from a year ago. Regionally, the West has the highest payment at 23.4 percent of income. The South had the second highest payment at 16.7 percent followed by the Northeast at 16.5 percent. The Midwest had the lowest payment as a percentage of income at 13.1 percent.

  • Regionally, the Northeast recorded the biggest increase in home prices at 9.2 percent. The South had an increase of 2.7 percent while the West had a gain of 2.3 percent. The Midwest had a modest decline in price of 0.1 percent.
  • Regionally, all four regions saw a decline in affordability from a year ago. The Northeast had the biggest drop in affordability of 14.3 percent. The South had a decline of 8.2 percent followed by the Midwest that fell 5.8 percent. The West had the smallest drop of 5.6 percent.
  • On a monthly basis, affordability is up from last month in all of the four regions. The Midwest region had the biggest increase of 4.7 percent. The Northeast had a decline of 3.1 percent followed by the West with a dip of 2.3 percent. The South had the smallest gain in affordability of 0.3 percent.
  • Despite month-to-month changes, the most affordable region was the Midwest, with an index value of 191.5. The least affordable region remained the West where the index was 106.9. For comparison, the index was 149.3 in the South, and 151.8 in the Northeast.

  • Mortgage applications are currently down while credit availability is up. Home prices are up 3.4 percent while median family incomes are growing 3.6 percent. Sales declined this year due to affordability issues, which has been more impactful than a healthy job market. Gains in affordability in all four regions are a good sign in the current market. Rate changes have an impact on the housing sector so small hikes can influence the effect on finances for potential homebuyers.

  • The Housing Affordability Index calculation assumes a 20 percent down payment and a 25 percent qualifying ratio (principal and interest payment to income). See further details on the methodology and assumptions behind the calculation here.

Testimonials Page

We want to take the time to let you know how much we appreciated the hard work that Lucille Evans did for us in the recent sale of our home in San Ramon. It was a hard decision for us to put the house on the market and move away from the area and the friends we knew for over 20 years. Lucille was very sensitive to our feelings but at the same time she was very professional in every situation that presented itself in the course of selling our home. She went the extra mile even to the point of doing some of the leg work that rightfully should have been done by the realtor working for the buyers of our property. We are very thankful to have had Lucille working on our behalf and helping us to do the things that needed to take place to make the sale go as smoothly as possible. We would not hesitate one second in calling on Lucille again for ourselves or recommending her to our friends who need the help of such a competent real estate agent, who would undoubtedly become their friend in the process. We are confident that Lucille Evans will continue to display a smile and her integrity will be evident as she continues to work hard for her clients as an agent with your organization. Ken and Linda Santoro
I have been an Escrow Coordinator for RE/MAX Accord and other Real Estate Companies for many years. Because of this, I have had the privilege of working with Lucille Evans. One of the reasons I enjoy working with Lucille is because she remains ethical and moral throughout the transaction. I have also seen Lucille close very challenging escrows that would have fallen out of escrow with other agents. Not only does Lucille close the challenging escrows, she closes them with all parties feeling that it was a win/win situation. Getting a property in escrow and closing it on time can be very challenging. However, Lucille continually closes her escrows despite challenges. Therefore, I highly recommend Lucille to anyone interested in selling their home. Judy Sylvester, Escrow Coordinator
Lucille Evans, Broker/Consultant – RE/MAX Accord, acted as our Realtor as we offered our home for sale. At all times Lucille worked for us and established a level of confidence that we have not experienced in other home sales. She took every opportunity to act in our interest and did so to our entire satisfaction. She worked tirelessly in our behalf. She held a series of open houses that brought many people to view our home. She advertised our property effectively. She attracted a qualified buyer and negotiated successfully on our behalf. She is a most effective Realtor and we wholeheartedly commend her to any who may read this reference. When, at essentially the last minute, we were faced with a totally unanticipated medical problem and were forced to withdraw she acted with compassion and professionalism of the first order. Her actions in our time of need clearly show her willingness and ability to work on behalf of her clients. Often in business one is left with the impression of a cold, profit motivated, salesperson. Nothing could be further from the case with Lucille Evans. At all times we knew we had a professional working on our behalf and caring for our needs. We recommend Lucille Evans, without any reservation what-so-ever, to whoever she may share this reference with. Gordon and Yvonne Kimber
