The housing affordability index is calculated such that a value of 100 indicates a household has exactly enough income to qualify for a 30-year conventional mortagage on a median valued home assuming a 20% down payment, qualifying median household income of 25% of the expected monthly payment (excluding PMI and property taxes), and 5-year average of 30-year mortgage interest rates shown in the table below. An index value of 200 indicates housholds earning the median household income have 200% of the income neccesary to qualify for a conventional loan for 80% of the value of a median-priced home.
