Finding affordable areas to live in can be stressful, but it is not impossible.
If you're willing to move just a short drive away from a big city, you're more likely to find an affordable area to live in. If you haven't done your research, you don't have to. HomeSnacks, a digital hub showcasing what it is like to live in different areas, released a list of the most affordable places in each state.
The report had some interesting facts to add about Kentucky:
While many parts of Kentucky are above the national average for unemployment, there are places that are trying to keep the Bluegrass State in the black. Kentucky companies like Jif Peanut Butter and Post-it Notes provide good jobs for this flyover state’s residents. Coincidentally, we can thank Kentucky’s education institutions like the University of Louisville for producing smart, hard-working Kentuckians who want to make Kentucky available and affordable for all.
So where's the cheapest place to live?
It's Princeton in western Kentucky. The median price of a home is $79,300, but the downside is that this small city has a crime rate higher than the state's average.
