In contrast, the 2016 HLR found that you don’t have to move to the middle of nowhere to find an affordable home. Many of the most affordable markets are located in -or within an hour’s drive to- metropolitan areas that offer access to jobs, culture, entertainment or top universities. This year, Detroit, an iconic city which has seen a major revitalization, ranked as the most affordable market in the country where an average four-bedroom, two-bathroom home costs $64,110.

“Silicon Valley has been at the forefront of innovation in the U.S. for years, with leading tech companies attracting some of the brightest entrepreneurial minds in the world,” says Charlie Young, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. “Clearly, the amenities of the region are also impacting home prices.  While there are 25 communities in the U.S. where the average price of a four-bed, two-bath home is more than $1 million, it’s fascinating to find that nearly 40 percent of the cities we studied had like-sized homes for less than $250,000.”

“Saratoga has long been known for attracting Bay Area business executives,” says Nancy Robinson, regional vice president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage San Francisco Bay Area. “The continued success of the technology industry coupled with the ongoing demand for properties, exclusivity, highly-ranked public schools and comparably larger lot sizes of the area have made Saratoga one of the most desirable places to live in Silicon Valley.”

“The city of Detroit has been experiencing a renaissance in the last few years,” says John North, chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel in Bingham Farms. “Due to an invigorated community, culture and resurgence of young professionals, more and more people are looking to Detroit as an affordable place to settle and lay down roots.”
