With incomes predicted to grow at roughly the same rate by year’s end as home values and rents, housing costs are forecasted to plateau — not improve or get any worse – in some of the nation’s largest cities.

This prediction has to be a slice of good news for renters and homebuyers in San Francisco, Miami, New York City and Los Angeles, as these cities are some of the most unaffordable housing markets nationally.
