By Melinda Fulmer of MSN Real Estate
Big-city glitz and glamour can wear thin when you’re struggling to pay your bills each month. If you’re ready to swap that condo for a house with acreage, or are just interested in a place that will upgrade your lifestyle without draining your wallet, we’ve got some suggestions for you.
MSN Real Estate and Bert Sperling of Sperling’s Best Places evaluated the most affordable markets within the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas and identified 10 livable areas: places where unemployment is lower than the national average, where commute times are mercifully short and where there are enough cultural and recreational diversions to keep most residents content. The result is the MSN Real Estate Most Livable Bargain Markets list.
