Halifax 2009 Key Worker Housing Review
23 May 2009
Housing affordability for key public sector workers has improved since house prices peaked in 2007 quarter three. Nearly one in six towns (18%) has become affordable for the average key worker since the summer of 2007. Whilst the majority of towns remain unaffordable, one in five towns (21%) is now calculated by Halifax to be affordable for key workers compared to only (3%) in 2007.
