I have lived in Colorado all of my life and have no idea what any other place would be like.  Colorado has a lot to offer and is reasonable to live here.

What Forbes didn't tell you is the reason homes are so affordable in the Rust Belt.

They're affordable cause they are sucky places to live. Whether its the lousy unpredictable weather, lack of good job availability, dingy depressing view each and every day, or quality and attitude of people [Knoxville is cool, lived there, and surprised its on the list...but its the only good one]. this is the reason why they are cheaper. Thanks, but Ill stick with California's Central Coast, pay the little bit extra, and ENJOY my life each and every day. JMO.

I lived in Louisville all my life, up until 14 years ago. So about 40 years now I can't stand even driving up there. The only reason I go there is to visit my Mom, I try to avoid it at all cost. I only moved about 30 miles south and it is a different world down here, the people seem to be friendlier and more compassionate, most every one minds there own business. So I say every one needs to move to the country. One good thing about Louisville though, is that they do have one hell of a Basketball team, oh and their Football team is good too. GO CARDS

Warren is inexpensive. But TROY and FARMINGTON HILLS are NOT...Warren is not in the same category as the other 2 cities mentioned. BAD reporting when you do not check any data or facts.

New York City is affordable if you live on the E or the F line.

As it is said; WNY has it all; most everything that covers a wide range of likes. There are some negs. The non-winter months in Western NY are great....as long as it's not a rainy year. The winters are fine....as long as you like winter activites and it actually snows (half the time over the past 30 tears, the ground is bare half the winter; just cold). Property taxes are a killer and wages are low (unless you are employed by the State). The area is beautiful; I really enjoy visiting the area on a yearly basis to see  family and friends that still live there When the time comes, I may yet put a houseboat on one of the lakes for my summer escape from the southwest blast furnance temps.

Been to Buffalo recently. It is a very nice, clean, affordable city with everything you could possible want only minutes away.

Shouts out to Buffalo, nice place, went to Buffalo State.  The city is really chill and has a vibrant art scene.  For a smaller-ish city it's a nice place to live.

The only one I would even consider living in is Knoxville.

What about Detroit- you can get a house for free and get full time work tearing down the ones no one wants.

Michigan has had the highest unemployment numbers for the last 15 years!

Nice current photo of Cincinnati there, since Riverfront has been torn down ages ago (2002!), the waterfront has been redone, and the Great American building now dominates the skyline.

These areas need to be some of the cheapest places in the country. Why else would anyone live there? I noticed that Miami, San Francisco, Boston, San Diego, and New York City are not on the list. They don't need to be cheap.

Not too sure about the affordability of winters in Michigan and Ohio.
