There are many ways to think about how much buying a house costs or how much house you can afford. Considered less often is how many hours of work that money equates to. At least most people don't buy one of those pricey Game of Thrones beers and think, "This beer cost me one hour of work."
GOBankingRates has put together those figures for the nation's 25 largest cities. The calculation takes a handful of variables into account, including median home prices, mortgage rates, and median household income in each city. From there, it calculated median hourly pay based on the number of work hours in a year in order to provide how many hours per week you'd need to work to afford a house in these markets.
Median prices and not looking at other factors that go into everyday life don't make this a bible of statistical data. However, it provides an interesting look at home prices, and how they correlate to working hours across the nation.
