$693.57 in Phoenix will get you smack dab in the middle of the barrio.

Ridiculous list.

One of the things I want people to see is the cities that aren't on there.

Nashville
Birmingham
Little Rock
Clarksville
Charlotte

Southern cities can be great places to live and very affordable.

Somehow I knew that the Bay area, California would be somewhere at the top of the list..
I was out there for 6 years & had a 1br apartment that we were paying almost 1000.00/month for. And that was almost 5 years ago. It was very hard to move out of the state-we were always broke! I learned my lesson on that one. Never again.

$693.57 in Phoenix will get you smack dab in the middle of the barrio.

Same in Ca...that's why we were paying 995.00 /month

I figured Seattle was going to be on the list....

And I was right. I am a slave to my mortgage.

Seattle has been among the most overpriced housing markets for a long time.

I like Southern living. Low cost of living and high community and job growth.

Plus no Seahawk fans.

No, there's nothing wrong with Southern living. And a good education will really carry you a long way down here.

The scary thing is that every real estate analyst says that Seattle prices will continue to go up. If the bubble bursts, then the market might flatten out some. But nobody thinks it will go down barring some major catastrophe like a dirty bomb or something.

The problem out here is that Seattle is wedged between the Puget Sound and a giant lake. The traffic to get across the lake or up and down the 1-5 corridor is terrible. All the buildable land in Seattle is in use. We are victims of our geography. People want to live close to the city because of the commerce/jobs and cultural appeal. And if you go far enough out of town to buy reasonably priced land, you live too far away. So that combined with a really strong future job market makes for a crazy real estate market. I'm not complaining that people have jobs. Its just depressing if you are trying to buy a house on a middle class income.

Thank goodness my wife and I bought a house when we got married five years ago. If we didn't get dealt into the game back then, there is no way we could afford anything besides a tiny condo or townhouse now...

I know, I could move. I was jsut doing work at Brentwood outside of Nashville. It was beautiful and I was shocked to see what incredible houses you could buy for less than 400K. But I love this town and have worked hard to develop my business out here. I don't know if I could live away from the water and mountains. So I'll stop bitching about house prices since its my choice to be here.
