Of the many meanings given to the term “housing crisis” in Europe, the one invoked most frequently concerns the affordability of housing. We know that house prices have grown across the Eurozone for over a decade and that an increase in sale prices often goes hand in hand with an inability of families to afford their monthly housing costs. Yet one-off prices and ongoing housing costs are not the same, and evidence on the latter is scarcer and has not featured so prominently in recent public debate. Our interest is in the extent to which housing costs, for both owners and renters, are unaffordable given their current incomes.
