A mortgage resource website reports that a household in the Metroplex needs more than $59,500 in annual income to qualify for a median-priced house. That's roughly $4,100 more than the income needed at the national level.
The study, by HSH.com, is based on a median home price of $249,000 and a 20 percent down payment.
Finding a $250K home is tough, but it is possible.
