Stephanie was a pleasure to work with throughout our transaction and very responsive which is something most realtors lack these days. We would highly recommend her and trust her expertise. Jon Polk
Dear perspective home owners. We recently moved to Kentucky and did not know where to begin. We talked with many realtors but never got the feeling that they cared. Once we were ready to buy we contacted Park Avenue Properties in Draffenville and met Stephanie. Wow she was knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate market, but most of all she protected us with her wealth of knowledge and made us feel like a friend and not a number. She was fun to work with and helped us find a very nice home and land well under our budget. Thank you Stephanie for being straight forward and honest and putting a big smile on our face as we love our home. The McManus family Mike & Erika McManus
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, On Time “Hire Stephanie. We are certain there are many good Realtors in the area, but we don't think you will find any better than Stephanie. She worked with us for about six months to help us locate the 'gem'. She is punctual with showings, accommodating with her time, honest and knows how the Real Estate industry works. She pushed when she needed to push and she backed off when we needed monitor the market conditions. Unlike some Realtors we've worked with in the past, she drove the deal even harder AFTER the contract was signed. That's what we needed! You don't have a deal until the papers are signed and the keys change hands. We say again ... hire with confidence. Thanks Stephanie.” Bryan & Carrie Howell
I just wanted you to know that Toney & I really appreciate all your hard work that you have done for us. I never thought that the house would sell this quickly, and with your help it sold within 5 months. Thanks again for your hardwork & dedication Pam & Toney Stockdale
I would like to thank Stephanie Clark and Park Avenue Properties for their first class service regarding our recent property purchase. Stephanie really went "to bat" for us and the results were exceptional. My wife and I were very pleased with her patience and willingness to do whatever was needed to complete the transaction. Thanks again! Mark Martin

December 2018 Housing Affordability Index

At the national level, housing affordability is up from last month but down from a year ago. Mortgage rates were unchanged from last month at 4.99 percent this December, and up 18.2 percent compared to 4.22 percent a year ago.

  • Housing affordability declined from a year ago in December moving the index down 8.4 percent from 161.2 to 147.6. The median sales price for a single family home sold in December in the US was $256,400 up 3.4 percent from a year ago.
  • Nationally, mortgage rates were up 77 basis point from one year ago (one percentage point equals 100 basis points).
  • The payment as a percentage of income was down from last month at 16.9 percent this December and up from 15.5 percent from a year ago. Regionally, the West has the highest payment at 23.4 percent of income. The South had the second highest payment at 16.7 percent followed by the Northeast at 16.5 percent. The Midwest had the lowest payment as a percentage of income at 13.1 percent.

  • Regionally, the Northeast recorded the biggest increase in home prices at 9.2 percent. The South had an increase of 2.7 percent while the West had a gain of 2.3 percent. The Midwest had a modest decline in price of 0.1 percent.
  • Regionally, all four regions saw a decline in affordability from a year ago. The Northeast had the biggest drop in affordability of 14.3 percent. The South had a decline of 8.2 percent followed by the Midwest that fell 5.8 percent. The West had the smallest drop of 5.6 percent.
  • On a monthly basis, affordability is up from last month in all of the four regions. The Midwest region had the biggest increase of 4.7 percent. The Northeast had a decline of 3.1 percent followed by the West with a dip of 2.3 percent. The South had the smallest gain in affordability of 0.3 percent.
  • Despite month-to-month changes, the most affordable region was the Midwest, with an index value of 191.5. The least affordable region remained the West where the index was 106.9. For comparison, the index was 149.3 in the South, and 151.8 in the Northeast.

  • Mortgage applications are currently down while credit availability is up. Home prices are up 3.4 percent while median family incomes are growing 3.6 percent. Sales declined this year due to affordability issues, which has been more impactful than a healthy job market. Gains in affordability in all four regions are a good sign in the current market. Rate changes have an impact on the housing sector so small hikes can influence the effect on finances for potential homebuyers.

  • The Housing Affordability Index calculation assumes a 20 percent down payment and a 25 percent qualifying ratio (principal and interest payment to income). See further details on the methodology and assumptions behind the calculation here.
