This indicator measures the proportion of single-family homes that fall within a “middle class” price range. The lower end of the range is the value of a home obtainable by a household earning 50% of the area median income (AMI). The upper end of the range is the value of a home obtainable by a household earning 120% of the AMI. For 2006, the middle-class price range for the City of Dallas was $138,446 to $332,271. It is worth noting that in much of the Southern Sector, most homes were valued at less than $138,446, and were therefore not designated as middle-class housing.
