Do you have an eye on the home market, wondering if you’ll ever be able to get your foot on the property ladder? Perhaps you’ve also pondered where you could get an affordable house.
According to The Ascent, the median home price in the United States was $428,700 in the first quarter of 2022. The good news is that if you’re ready to relocate, there are absolute bargains in the ten states with the lowest housing prices.
The average price of Louisiana, the tenth least costly state, is less than half that, at $214,522. If Mardi Gras, delectable culinary selections, and a rich history aren’t enough to entice you to the Pelican State, don’t panic; there are less expensive options.
