Akron, OH

 

The Midwest comes in with the most amount of cities in the list, with the South coming in second.  The West Coast comes up empty with no cities ranked in the magazine’s list of affordable cities.

 

Forbes released its list of America’s most affordable cities, and it’s surprising what money will buy in some areas of the country.

New York City is the priciest place to reside in the United States, but Buffalo is the most affordable city in the nation.

Forbes made its selections based on three primary factors: housing affordability, as measured by the National Association of Home Builders; a cost of living index from Sperling’s Best Places; and Consumer Price Index (CPI) government data.

Based on those factors, Ohio ended up as the state with the most affordable large cities: Cincinnati (No. 3); Dayton (No. 4); Akron (No. 6); Toledo (No. 11); and Columbus (No. 20).
