The National Association of Home Builders just released a report indicating that for every $1,000 increase in the price of a home it chases away 206,000 people from the market. The analysis essentially found that for every $833 paid in fees (impact, building permit, other regulatory fees) that it increased the price of a home about $1,000. This reflects the money that it takes to borrow to pay those fees.
The full report has loads of interesting data including the number of households to income distribution.
