The most?affordable?in the country is in Dallas-Ft. Worth, followed by Houston and Minneapolis. Meanwhile, Orlando and Las Vegas round out the top five.Lanny Baker, president and CEO of ZipRealty, pointed out that location is everything when it comes to home prices.”Purchasing a home is a major ticket item for people in any city, and yet our research clearly shows that housing affordability can differ vastly from one city to the next,” said Baker. “It is important for consumers to understand how housing in their local market tends to be priced relative not only to local income levels, but in comparison to other areas of the nation.”There's something about the Lone Star State that makes listing prices eminently affordable.
