Warner Robins has been named the most affordable place in Georgia by Movoto Real Estate. Perry takes the No. 4 spot.
“What makes Warner Robins the most affordable place in Georgia?” Movoto asks on its blog. “This city of more than 66,000 has the third-best unemployment rate across the places we studied. Our analysis marked the unemployment rate at 7.2 percent, lower than Georgia’s 8.1 percent unemployment rate.
“Other criteria Warner Robins excelled in were its utility costs as well as its median home value.”
Meanwhile in Perry, the unemployment rate and cost of utilities helped propel the Houston County city into the top five. However, its higher cost of food and median household income prevented Perry from placing higher, the blog states.
Macon placed 18th on the list.
