April Mayer, sleep expert at Amerisleep, said:
“Housing security is a vital issue, and the importance of having somewhere safe and affordable to lay our heads each night has only been reinforced by the recent global pandemic. When you look at the property price of the average space of a bedroom in each US state, this data gives us a fascinating insight into the disparity of cost in housing across the nation. A bedroom’s amount of space in the priciest state on the list is at close to eight times more expensive than the state with the cheapest bedrooms, which may well affect where families choose to settle and whether they can afford to buy any slice of property at all.”
