Here are the 15 most affordable states to buy a home according to Inman news. Tennessee and Georgia made the list, but Tennessee was number 15. Georgia was 11. That does not surprise me as many home buyers have found Georgia to be a more affordable option than TN in the Chattanooga area.
What did surprise me is that Washington DC is more expensive per square foot than California according to the same study. Hawaii was the 2nd most expensive state and California was the 3rd most expensive state for real estate. Massachusetts came in 4th.
