Coming from someone who's been to Ohio, it's not really surprising. 2 of the 3 major cities, Cleveland and Cincinnati, have been losing a lot of people until recently. That means cheap houses. Even the more expensive newer houses in the outer suburbs of these cities are very cheap compared to somewhere like Colorado or Massachusetts, where the same house in the same type of neighborhood would be double or even triple the price.

Maybe, with people flooding out of upstate New York, that'll cheapen up too

I forgot about the Southeast. I thought those would be more expensive than some of the Midwest states I was guessing.

The fast-growing Southern states are pricier (Georgia, Florida, North Carolina), and the declining ones are cheap. Supply and demand I guess

Only near London. Out in York somewhere you could get a nice 2-bed bungalow for that.

Buying homes in New York city is typically more expensive than London. US just has a looooot more "out somewhere".

This Quiz is pretty much just think of the majority of the most unappealing US States to live in and you’re probably right lol.

If you're someone that could work from home, West Virginia would be a great state to live.
