Hi Penny,Welcome to TMF! In the Summer Issue of "Living Southern Style" they had a map of the U.S. which listed the major cities, the median home value of each and a cost-of-living index number.Nationwide the median home value is $208,500 and the nationwide cost-of-living index is 100, so any of the cities below 100 would be cheaper than the national average.Tucson had a COL number of 95.6. Cities listed that were lower than that are as follows:Charlotte, NC 92.1Cheyenne, WY 92.2Austin, TX 90.6Sioux Falls, SD 90.4In the 80s:Savannah, GA 89.4Indianapolis, IN 81.9Louisville, KY 86Mobile, AL 81.1Biloxi, MS 85Galveston, TX 81.6Houston, TX (somewhere in the 80s)Dallas, TX (somewhere in the 80s)Lincoln, NE 89.5Billings, MT 89.5Twin Falls, ID 84.9Hot Springs, AR 82.2Oklahoma City, OK 81.4Aiken, SC 87.9Nashville, TN 85.7Cedar Rapids, IA 85.3Bismarck, ND 87.1In the 70s:Knoxville, TV 78.9Springfield, MO 78.4San Antonio, TX 74.7So according to their map any of those cities would be less expensive than Tucson.2old
