If you’re looking for affordable places to live, start your search in Texas and Arkansas. Five of the ten cheapest cities in the U.S. can be found 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 come as 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. We screened out cities with population below 50,000. All ten finalists, while different in many ways, shared one overarching similarity: super-affordable housing options for renters and homeowners alike.

 

Take a look at our list of the ten cheapest places to live.
