Winston-Salem Makes Kiplinger’s “Cheapest Cities” List
Winston-Salem is making news again. Personal Finance magazine, Kiplinger’s, included our city in their recent “Top 10 Cheapest U.S. Cities” list. Winston-Salem came in at number ten on the list with Harlingen, Texas being number one. The primary reason Winston-Salem made the list was for affordable housing. Kipplinger has the average home price at $199,118 (not sure how they came up with that price…according to the Triad MLS it’s $144,923 and median price is $119,000) and the average apartment at $590 per month.
The list was compiled by using a cost of living index that measures relative price levels for housing, utilities, transportation, grocery items, health care, and miscellaneous goods and services. This cost of living index uses 100 as the national average. The Winston-Salem Cost of Living Indes was listed at 87.5. You can see the complete list at the link below.
