The number of affordable listings fell 53% from a year earlier in 2022, according to a Redfin analysis of the top 100 U.S. markets. In 2022, 21% of homes for sale were affordable for the typical household, the lowest share on record. A listing is considered affordable if the estimated mortgage payment is <30% of the local area’s median income.
