In a 2011 survey conducted by the U. S. Census Bureau and the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), covering approximately 132.4 million housing units, 90 million are single-family homes, 9.07 million are manufactured homes, and 10.7 million are sited in two to four family buildings. 10.3 million of the units are condominiums or cooperatives, and just over five million are in larger apartment structures of 50 units or more. One third of the roughly 76 million owner-occupied dwellings are owned fee and clear, while 43 million have a single mortgage lien on the property and 6.5 million have two. In addition, as mortgagenewsdaily tells MHProNews, the median price for a home acquired in 2011 was $110,000, a 2.3 percent increase over 2009. The median monthly mortgage payment for homeowners was $1,015 in 2011.
