Average home price numbers reflect quality- adjusted averages. These averages are constructed using the multiple regression approach. Among the independent variables in the analysis are: square footage, number of baths, age, and other amenities of the structure. This approach to calculating quality-adjusted prices is discussed in: G. D. Jud & T. G. Seaks, "Sample Selection Bias in Estimating Housing Sales Prices," Journal of Real Estate Research, Vol. 9, No. 3, (1994), pp. 289-298. The affordability index measures changes in the income-payment ratio. The loan payment is calculated as the monthly payment necessary to finance a 90 percent, 30-year loan on the average house price at prevailing interest rates. The income measure is average household income, as reported by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis. The sales-list price spread is the ratio of selling price to listing price. The Greensboro Housing Report is compiled for the Triad MLS by: Dr. G.
