Rising home costs cause stress beyond mortgage payments
The true price of rising home costs goes far beyond ballooning mortgage payments, a poll by the Homeownership Alliance finds.
The Washington-based group said last week that more than half the residents surveyed worry that home costs will prevent them from sending their children to decent schools. Nearly half are considering whether to leave their communities in search of affordable, desirable housing. And almost a third have someone in the family who commutes at least an hour to work.
