How Affordable Are Florida Homes?

The 2012 International Housing Affordability Survey is out! The USA is one of the more affordable housing markets in the world, and some of those cities are in Florida.

That may not be unexpected news for those of us who suffered through the downturn in the  housing market, (and in Florida that was a significant drop in home values). The latest report confirms that we are in one of the more affordable real estate markets in the world. Page 17 details the bet value cities, which include Lakeland and Orlando. Certainly some cities remain on the unaffordable list, with many being in California.

If you are heading to Hong Kong, the news may not be so great- identified as the most unaffordable country in the world- perhaps here in Florida we need to take a breath and be thankful that the market is not in that realm.
