Best Cities to Live Well and Affordably
Realtor Magazine Online featured a story on Forbes Magazine's top 10 most affordable cities to live well. Taken into consideration were factors like access to arts, leisure and entertainment offerings--plus a low cost of housing.
Forbes used the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index to find housing affordability, 2006 Census figures, and Sperling's Best Places to find the best arts and leisure destinations.
Based on the NAHB/Wells Fargo housing affordability index, Indy has a higher percentage of homes available to the median-earning household than any other city. Plus, it has a wide range of arts, leisure and sports activities.
The other cities that made the list: Minneapolis, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Houston, Milwaukee, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Columbus (OH), and Atlanta.
