Home Price Inequality Could be A Good Thing

A new report has revealed that home price inequality could be a good thing when it comes to housing values in local markets. A recently published piece from National Mortgage News cites LendingTree research that highlights some of these markets.

"A larger gap between the least and most expensive properties in a market means homebuyers have more purchasing options," according to the NMN report.

"When a real estate market booms — like the tech hubs along the West Coast — the lower home values rise, causing more equality in prices, but all homes become less affordability."

There are a few cities that could really benefit from home price inequality and NMN revealed a list that includes: Atlanta, Charlotte, Kansas City, Chicago, St. Louis and many more.

"Inequality is the defining economic debate of our times," said Tendayi Kapfidze, chief economist at LendingTree, in a press release, according to the NMN report.

"Since 1980, the majority of income growth in the United States has accrued to the top of the income scale, a trend that accelerated following the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Home values have finally recovered from the most recent housing crisis to the extent that affordability is now a concern. In many large cities, the median-priced home is now out of reach of median income households."
