BrianBallsOfSteel | Feb 13, 2013 11:36 PM ET JRFool | Feb 13, 2013 02:05 PM ET First time buyers are largely earning near the poverty level and their DTI is prohibitive for a house loan. ------- these are not the REAL first time home buyers... sorry for the booboo previous post...

giofls | Feb 14, 2013 02:26 PM ET Real median incomes are continuing to fall at about 1% per year, based on the reported inflation of 2 to 2.5%. So, whatever model you use for affordability (DTI, multiple of income, etc), middle class housing prices can`t rise any more than about 1% per year in nominal $s over the long haul. Add the current unemployment problems and aging demographics, and the forecast for housing over the next 10 years can`t be very good. What happens this month or next month or even this year is hard to predict, but the longer-term trend is what it is.
