Interest Rates have nothing to do with it..

BLOOMBERG: Low Mortgage Rates Fail to Get Phones Ringing

Mortgage rates near historic lows aren’t producing more buyers, said Kittrell, who recited terms on a rate sheet on his desk which he said were almost unprecedented in his 30 years as a broker: A 30-year fixed mortgage for 4.75 percent, a 15-year fixed for 4.25 percent, a 5-year adjustable at 3.5 percent.

Not wanting to state the obvious but this is because house prices are out of reach for the majority of people. Rates can go to 0% and they still wont have a large enough salary to secure a mortgage.
