  • 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, a more inclusive term to describe affordability at a range of different area median incomes.
