Top 20 Cities With Affordable Rent in the U.S.
Affordable rent is hard to find in many cities across the United States. Now, we’re not talking about dirt cheso housing, but rather, we mean decent, clean affordable housing in safe neighborhood.
We all know that there are some cities that traditionally have exceedingly high rent, like Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay area, Seattle and New York City.
However there are many other cities across the United States where the rent is so high that it's forcing middle and lower middle income people to try to find alternative housing solutions.
Some people are forced to live in substandard housing, and some others are even forced to live in their cars. Van dwelling is becoming a way of life for many Americans.
This issue with not having enough affordable housing for average people is really getting out of hand. But, fortunately there are some cities across the United States that still offer affordable rental rates.
If you earn or can earn between $12 and $20 an hour, and you need to find permanent, affordable housing, keep reading.
