In a news item this morning titled Home loan costs pressure families more evidence of the unaffordability of housing in Sydney.
"Families in Sydney, where the median-priced home is $520,000, require a combined income of $145,000 to keep up with their mortgage payments."

Monthly mortgage repayments were calculated on the basis of a 25-year loan equal to 90 per cent of the median house price."
