Sun housing report isn't news you can use

July 22, 2011

Your report using the figure of $220,000 for the "average sale price of a typical home" tells us nothing about what workers in relatively low-paying jobs can afford ("Housing costs out of reach for many Maryland workers," July 21).

How about a more useful story about the difficulties ordinary people face in finding affordable housing? And stop using averages for housing costs and give us the median numbers.

In the future, take the time to do a more in-depth look at your subject before publishing an alarming but not so useful article.
