For many middle class families today, homeownership is easily within reach in St. George, UT. The American Dream is alive and well all over Washington County, UT. While you find an array of home prices across St. George, there are many middle class homes to choose from. On a national basis, home prices have been below their long-term average and mortgage rates are below the historic rates we’ve seen. Therefore, buying a home is still more affordable than during the housing bubble.
When assessing the affordability of middle class homes, the home sales across the nation were looked at. Each typical household in the metro areas of the US were carefully examined for their sales prices. The affordability was determined by the total monthly payment for the home being less than 31% of the area’s median household income. And, Southern Utah showed an array of middle class homes for buyers to choose from.
