Livermore, Pleasanton, Danville, Short Sale Specialist

If you’re looking for affordable places to live, start your search in Texas and Arkansas. Five of the 10 cheapest cities in the U.S. are in those two states. The rest of the cities are scattered across the nation’s midsection, from as far west as Idaho to as far east as Tennessee. Some might be a surprise.

We compiled our list based on the Council for Community and Economic Research’s calculations of living expenses in 307 urban areas. Its cost-of-living index measures prices for housing, groceries, utilities, transportation, health care and miscellaneous goods and services. Data on population, household incomes and home values come from the Census Bureau. We ignored cities with populations below 50,000. The top 10, while different in many ways, shared one overarching similarity: super-affordable housing options for renters and homeowners alike.
