By Samantha Guzman

Each 1 percent drop in interest rates in the last 15 years has allowed home sellers to raise prices 12 percent. According to the report, a typical family earning $60,000 per year can afford a mortgage payment of $1,800 per month, and would have qualified for a $245,000 mortgage in the year 2000 when mortgage rates were 8 percent. This same family qualifies for a home priced at $377,000 when rates are 4.0%.
