Question: Affordable Housing?

Issue: Residents feel housing pain: Home prices, low wages are driving some native North Idahoans out/Dave Turner, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: In the past two years, home prices in Kootenai County have skyrocketed. From an average $185,000 just a little over a year ago to $234,000 now. Prices of so-called "affordable" homes have also jumped, from about $115,000 to between $170,000 and $185,000 within the past 24 months.

Question: Do you know anyone who has been forced by high housing prices to move from the area?
