These Are The Cheapest Places To Buy a Home in Every State, 2024

The first couple of years of the COVID-19 period had a great influence on American housing, thus making people move out from costly places populated with several persons. However, during this time, there were high mortgage rates and a lot of demand for houses that caused conflicts between potential buyers who fought so hard to get themselves a house.

Nevertheless, the landscape of residential real estate in the United States has evolved significantly in 2023. Sales have significantly decelerated, citing an increase in housing loan rates and prospective homeowners reluctant to surrender their dirt-cheap loans. As much as Austin, Texas, and even San Francisco would be thought of as traditionally hot or expensive markets, their house values are already declining by at least ten percent, as per the Washington Post’s evaluation based on the home price data gathered throughout the region. In 18 cities, the April 2020 list prices are lower than they were in the same month a year ago, while in all but one city, the April 2020 median list price is below the state median for any month. One example is in Providence-Warwick, Rhode Island. This is the only city in the state with available information. The median list price in this city is $529,900, while Rhode Island’s median stands at $525,500.

The average price per square foot across 26 cities is slightly lower than the statewide figure by about 50%. For example, in Olean, New York, they even get this by just 20%, the median being only $125,000 as it compares Contrary to this, these cities usually have small homes as compared to that which the statewide standard prices would normally guarantee despite the fact they have the lowest list fees on their states.

The U.S. residential real estate market, which experienced a surge amid the initial years of the COVID-19 pandemic, has seen a notable slowdown in 2023. Factors such as rising interest rates and homeowners hesitating to part with their low-rate mortgages have contributed to this shift, resulting in declining home prices even in traditionally hot markets. This change is evident across various cities, with 18 of them showing decreased list prices compared to the previous year. Additionally, in many cities, the median list price is now lower than the state median, reflecting a broader trend of affordability concerns in the housing market.
