I always love these lists. It is never a surprise what makes the list for the most and least affordable cities. Are we learning anything new about ourselves? The Midwest for years continues to lose jobs which has created affordable cities, but they lack the economies of the most expensive cities. The real question is how do we merge the two so that affordable cities can have a stronger job base while the more expensive cities make it more affordable for people to stay?
Here is the list of the top five most and least affordable:
San Francisco, CA
Santa Ana, CA
Los Angeles, CA
