A new study shows that people who use income tax numbers are more likely to have more affordable housing than those who don’t.
That’s because they’re more likely than people who don.
“We’re not talking about someone living in a mansion,” says Dan Rosenbaum, an economist at the Urban Institute.
“We’re talking about somebody living in their neighborhood.”
Rosenbaum and his colleagues looked at Census data that showed where people lived in the U.S. in 2015.
Using the Census data, they estimated that about half of Americans live in homes that earn less than $200,000 per year, or $80,000 for a two-person household.
When you factor in the cost of rent, Rosenbaum says, that’s an additional $1,000 in the mix.
But even though people are more than likely to live in affordable housing, Rosenba says, it’s not the only way to save.
“There’s an opportunity cost associated with this,” he says.
There are also a number of ways to reduce your monthly mortgage payment.
Rosenbaum’s team looked at the costs of paying off your mortgage by taking a step back and looking at the amount you’ll save by not having to pay that mortgage.
For example, if you pay $150 a month for your monthly rent, you’re saving about $1 a month.
But if you’re paying $250 a month, you’ll only be saving $0.50 a month on your mortgage.
If you’re not worried about paying that mortgage, Rosenbam says, you can try paying off the mortgage over time.
If you’ve already paid it off, you might even be able to refinance your mortgage if you have the cash.
Rosenbaum says he found the most valuable savings to be taking a little more time to build out a home.
If your mortgage is due in 20 years, for example, you could pay off the loan for 25 years, he says, or even 30 years.
Rosenba notes that he wasn’t able to find a way to calculate how much the average American household saves annually through home equity loans.
In addition to making sure your home is more affordable, Rosenbahns group says, the data shows that you should pay your mortgage early.
That’s especially true if you live in a city, which has lower taxes and a smaller number of people with credit scores.
Rosenbahn says that, by lowering your monthly payments to help you avoid having to refortify, you have a higher chance of having a better mortgage, which can save you a lot of money over the long run.
