Forbes published its list of America’s Most Affordable Cities, and our hometown reached #1. To find the most affordable cities, Forbes looked at data for the US’s 100 largest metropolitan areas with a population of more than 600,000 people (including surrounding suburbs like Amherst, Niagara Falls, Hamburg, etc). The study took into account the city’s housing affordability, cost of living, and the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the rest of the country.
Buffalo came out on top, for its low cost-of-living: the median income for residents is $63,500 and the median home price is $100,000, making it very affordable for inhabitants to own homes and live comfortably.
