Columbus, Ohio Makes Forbes Top 10 for Value

Your Dollar Goes Further in Columbus, Ohio 

An article caught my eye in a recent e-newsletter that I received from the National Association of Realtors.  On October 10th, Forbes magazine published a list of 10 cities where residents get the most for their money.  When I saw the headline I decided to read the entire article to see if by chance Columbus was listed.  Surprise, surprise…it was!  Several sources were used to make the determination including comparison of a city’s median home price and its median household income.  Projected job growth was also a consideration. 

Money goes further in some places in the United States than it does in others and New Albany, OH is no exception.  Housing remains more affordable in the Midwest and the South which helps to explain the cities that made the list.  Here is the list of 10 cities Forbes found that offer the best value.

  2. San Antonio, Texas
  3. Indianapolis, Ind.
