THE ANSWER IS A RESOUNDING NO!!!!!

The Price of an Average 3/2 Home In Port St Lucie Today is $180,000 
Which is +/- $1300 Total Payment including taxes and insurance. 
If Prices go up by MODEST 5% (historic average)
The SAME HOME next Year will be $189K
Mortgage of +/- $1350
If by Predicted 15% (they've been going up 20% every year for past 3 years)
SAME HOME is 207K
Mortgage of +/- $1400
ASSUMING INTEREST
RATES STAY THE SAME!!
If Interest Rates rise from
Average 4.0% to 4.5%
Payment will go to $1463
