Want to know how living in a particular neighborhood impacts your family’s transportation budget? Check out the Department of Housing and Urban Development online calculators at

Get the transportation estimate for your neighborhood by entering your:

  • income;
  • housing costs;
  • vehicles; and
  • travel patterns, including the distance traveled from home to work each month.

The calculator compares your data with average costs for households of similar size and income and computes the trade-off between:

  • higher housing costs closer to work and play; and
  • lower housing costs supplemented by higher transportation costs.

Remember, transportation is a big chunk of your monthly expenses — know the costs before making a move!  Need more real estate advice? Call me today and I’ll help you calculate the true costs of homeownership.
