But the required salary figure would increase by $7,664 if you were to put 10 percent down as opposed to 20 percent.

    Key takeaways:

    • Mortgage rates fell in every one of our metros during the fourth quarter
    • Quarterly home prices fell in every metro but five, while home prices were up year-over-year in every metro but three
    • The Orlando metro area had the largest year-over-year price gain at 13.89 percent (Denver came in at a close second at 12.29 percent)
    • When putting 10 percent down instead of 20 percent, the required salary figures for our metro areas increased anywhere from $4,200 to $31,000
