Zillow study says housing affordability factors in incomes, occupations

  • Buffalo, Cleveland and Toledo appear affordable for a number of occupations.
  • California is an affordable market for teachers.
  • In the Northeast, lawyers and judges can afford large percentage of homes.

Markets with the cheapest homes aren’t necessarily the most affordable for every worker, as wages are often lower in these locales. A recent analysis by Zillow of median incomes and budgets for various occupations shows that the most affordable housing markets aren’t located in the middle portion of the nation.
