North America’s least affordable housing market is north of America, according to The International Housing Affordability Survey conducted by Point2Homes. Vancouver, with a median home sales price of more than $1.1 million and a median family income of $63,944, took the top spot. Home prices are slightly higher in the second-most unaffordable city, Manhattan, with a $1.2 million median, but New Yorkers’ $77,559 median income is also higher than their Canadian counterparts. Third place goes to San Francisco, where the median home price is even higher at nearly $1.3 million. But that’s offset by a median income of $92,094. [HousingWire]
