Some of the most affordable cities to live in the US are also some of the most beautiful. What it comes down to is the cost of living: How much does it cost to live in the city? Furthermore, how much is rent for a one-bedroom or two-bedroom home or apartment, and what's the median household income? If you think about the cost of living before you move to a new city, you might just be surprised by how cheap it'll wind up being. No need to give up on that dream of owning your home just yet.
