This video, part of the REALTOR® University Speaker Series, contains the highlights of Dr. Lisa Sturtevant’s talk on the Paycheck-to-Paycheck tool, which compares wages and housing costs in 207 metro areas, median home prices and the income needed to afford them as well as median incomes for 76 different occupations.   This tool has applications for the REALTOR® community, in that:

  • A local association could bring the information to discussions with their Chamber of Commerce or city developers on the comparative advantages of focused occupation-relevant recruiting.
  • Every day consumers looking for an affordable city for their chosen profession would find it useful to compare a multitude of metro areas or look at targeted metro area affordability.

Dr. Lisa Sturtevant is the Director for the Center for Housing Policy and Vice President for Research of the National Housing Conference.
