HSH.com used a mortgage rate of 4.43 percent and a median home price of $279,300 to calculate its Denver salary requirement. In fact, HSH.com reports that a 2.65 percent drop in the media home price in Denver in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a slight drop in mortgage rates equated to drop of about $2,500 in the salary requirement here.
"The Denver housing market has been known for its consistency — prices never rose too fast or fell too hard. The depreciation in quarterly prices was milder compared with some cities," HSH.com said in the report.Nationally, HSH.com found that affordability has increased significantly since the third quarter of 2013 as home prices and mortgage rates have fallen.
