Over the last decade, housing costs have soared. Income has also substantially increased—just not at a comparable rate. A study by QuoteWizard looked at the differences between median individual income and the median price for a house between 2012 and 2021. In the U.S., the median income was $65,712 in 2021, an increase of about 29%; the median cost per house was $314,000, an increase close to 70%. Florida is a bit below average, in both price for a house and income. But it still ranked in the top 10 nationally in the gap between cost of housing and income. The cost of a house in Florida has nearly doubled since 2012, while income only rose 20%.
