The news is so full of comments about the economy being bad and people managing to survive that it may be hard to think that there is anything like an economical city to live in. when you live in places like New York and Las Vegas where life is live on the fast lane, all you know about is how expensive life can be. When it comes to getting a house, the real estate guys may be smiling to the bank while the people renting the properties are struggling to pay rents. However, it is really consoling to know that there are still places where the average person can live comfortably without stretching too much.

Some may say that deciding which city is affordable than the other is a subjective thing and may differ based on what is taken into consideration.
