Ten Most Affordable Places to Buy a Home in America

MSN has an article to about the ten most affordable cities to buy a home. Not surprisingly all the cities are west of the Appalachians and go as far as the Rocky Mountains. The Midwest and Great Lakes area along with the central south of Oklahoma and Texas are the key zones. However, if you want the best deal you will have to suck up the fact that you would live in Minot, North Dakota.

While in graduate school in Minneapolis, my dad was officially 'stationed' at the air force base in Minot.

He said there was nothing there, and he couldn't understand why anyone would live there.

By the way, both Minot and Killeen are big military towns. That might be a trend for most affordable.
