We Aren't the Worst! Owning a Home in Vancouver is Less Affordable Than in New York City

Real estate firm Point2 Homes recently analyzed their data across North America and found that Vancouver (read: NOT New York City) is the most unaffordable on the continent. They gauged affordability by creating a ratio of the median home price to the median income levels.

Our study found that Vancouver is North America’s most unaffordable real estate market. With its insane affordability gap, Vancouver exceeds even notoriously inaccessible Manhattan, and all other North American markets. In fact, 32 out of the 50 locations we analyzed are considered seriously and severely unaffordable.
