  1. Current Housing Issues Impacting Oregon Workshop Panelists: Richard Bjelland – OHCS Mark Radabaugh - DLCD

  2. The FAB Housing Affordability Calculator© A Personal and Regional Housing Affordability Calculator Developed by Richard Bjelland OHCS State Housing Analyst

  3. Housing Affordability Assumptions • Housing is affordable when no more than 30% of income is spent on housing costs • Housing costs include mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, and utilities • Mortgage payments based on 80% 30 year mortgage - no mortgage insurance needed • Property taxes set at $15 per thousand • Insurance based on State Farm Ins. rates • Utility costs based on housing value

  4. Mortgage Rates and Affordability • Affordability is a function of mortgage rates • An affordability calculator should reflect different mortgage rate assumptions • Three different mortgage rates used • Historical rate of 8.1% based on past rates • Low rate is set at 6% • High rate is set at 12% • Demonstrates significant effect of interest rates on current housing affordability

  5. Lender Income Ratios & Affordability • Historically lenders have used an income ratio of ~30% to determine affordability • Today’s lenders may increase the ratio depending on an applicant’s credit score • A housing affordability calculator should have flexibility to reflect this situation • The FAB Calculator will handle historical and an individual’s approved higher ratio

  6. Multi-purpose Affordability Tool • Can be used to determine income needed to afford a particular house for sale • Can be used by households to determine the price of housing that can be afforded • Calculates the annual and monthly income needed and equivalent hourly earnings • Can be used to assess the relative affordability of housing within a region by using median household income and the median sale price of housing in the region
