how we got started
KNSA, Inc. was formed in response to the compelling data that
North Stonington's Median Home Price was $159,400.* In 2000.
TODAY The median home price is is $291,416*
This is more than an 80% cost increase while wages have not increased accordingly.
The income needed to afford the Median Rent of $1,417 is $50,000 to $70,000.
The median income for renters in town is $34,730.
We agree that “Homeownership is transformational, both for individuals and communities. Health outcomes improve, children do better in school, it stabilizes neighborhoods because people are more concerned and more engaged.”
