Attainable Housing

Attainable Housing is an umbrella term that reflects the many aspects of a home that make it suitable for a household in the City of Edmond. Attainable Housing is appropriate in:

  • Size (e.g., number of bedrooms, square footage)
  • Type (e.g., detached home, townhome, apartment)
  • Quality (e.g., healthy, safe, in good repair)
  • Affordability (i.e., within the price range for the household income)
  • Tenure (e.g., rental, for-sale)
  • Location (e.g., near employment, school, services, etc.).

Generally, Attainable Housing is a more inclusive term to describe affordability at a range of different area median incomes. It is usually used to talk about housing where housing cost and utilities make up no more than 30% of the gross household income for households earning up to 120% of the City’s median area income.
