About one in five housing markets are currently deemed unaffordable, according to new data released by RealtyTrac. In those locales, buying a median-priced home is less affordable than the historically normal level for that county. In a handful of counties, prices are so high that residents’ must use most of their paychecks to afford household expenses. 

To come up with their ranking, RealtyTrac took a look at sales data from 417 U.S. counties and used wage information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
