The information is amazing, but was this information for Americans only or for all people around the world regardless of their economic status? I felt like asking for more descriptions on the matter because I come from a poor family which is unable to afford any of what is described on the information sent to me. I am a Tanzanian University Student pursing for a first degree on Psychotherapy (Bachelor of counseling).

$370,000 the median price in mililani town? I guess if you like living in a one bedroom condo in the ghetto part of that town.  When I was looking for a decent place out in mililani most home prices were 600k+ ....  This article has to be a joke.

okay so let me get this --------- my family (my 2 kidsGirlBoy, husbandBoy, and meGirl :) could live in a cheap neighborhood with little crime and its affordable------ IM ALL FOR IT!!!!!!Open-mouthed

There is a reason these places are affordable.  Because they suck!  I have been to Indiana and its sucks to live there.  Let's be real...CA is the place to live...

The median single family home price in Mililani, HI is "down" to $563,000 as of 6/2010.  The data in this article for Mililani is outdated and/or inaccurate.   There are NO affordable suburbs in Hawaii.  In case you're curious, yes, I do live in Mililani.

What people really don't understand is that lower prices don't always attract buyers. Truly speaking, there could be undesirable people in the neighborhood, or instability in the economy. Hawaii has a stable economy, not to mention the most military bases in the smallest space. Wheeler AFB, Hickam AFB, Bellows AFB, Tripler AMC, Ft. Shafter, Schofield Barracks Military Reservation, Pearl Harbor Naval Base. But there are many cities where the native Hawaiians have become unfriendly, with much resemblance to our lower income communities. If you are military, it's a great place to be stationed. Otherwise, Hawaii is more costly on food and transport, although, it is only an island.

sure, Clark, NJ is a nice place but New Jersey, especially central Jersey, is extremely expensive so I'm not sure why Clark is on this list.

oh and if forgot, bet you cant get a good bagel in SAVAGE Minnesota. And how's the chinese food in Hales Corners Wisconsin.....I'll keep NYC and my mediocre job that pays just enough for the best bagel on earth and a great bowl wonton soup. I know my priorities!

Yes these are nice places if you dont care about about living in 'East JABIB" and not seeing anything remotely close to what appears to be big city around  you....and CLARK,NJ??? Clark has a small nice area surrounded by INDUSTRY and Industrial MFG'ing plants such as HQ to L'Oreal who has about 10 bldgs if not more.

Clark, NJ is far from an affordable suburb, it is a fairly exclusive area in Central NJ.  There is no way you can afford to move there if you "only" make in the area of $100K.  My wife and I both make about that and we could not afford to buy a home in Clark (We live in Old Bridge, 12 miles south).


What's funny is that Somerset, NJ is much more affordable and was rated one of the Top 10 places to live in the entire U.S., but I'm not sure what criteria was used.  Maybe it's not considered a suburb (Somerset) but a small city.


Your money will certainly go a lot further in Somerset and I think your commute to NYC (by train or bus) would be about the same as from expensive and exclusive Clark.

I prefer S. IL. to live in. The extreme southern part is called the upper South. The Ky - Barkley lake area is a short drive away as is the IL Ozark area. The climate is reasonably mild and the crime rate is low. Traffic is not heavy and the roads are good. The hospitals are excellent. The schools are first rate and the colleges and Universities are reasonably priced. St. Louis, Nashville and Memphis are day trip close. Hunters are offered a great verity of game, fishing is great. The cost of property is low compared with the majority of places. For those who like to gamble there are several Casinos.

the homeowners association in fishers seems a bit off

Hmm I think  would stick to Savage, Minn , Brandon, S.D. or Hales Corners, Wis

The problem with listing a community in New Jersey is that the state has astronomical property taxes. This has caused many to move out of New Jersey. No community in New Jersey should be listed as affordable.

Does anyone else see an issue with these statistics?  How is the median incomes around 100k when bls puts a median family income at around 56-60k?  Something is very fishy or these are all wealthy areas.

Who the hell wants to live in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana or Pennsylvania. Freezing cold winters that last forever, an elevation change of 1.5 inches over 15 lineal miles and hot career choices cleaning the slurpy machine at 7-11's.  I'll live some place more expensive and have a life.  Dave
