11) Pontiac

Well below the $100,000 mark, Pontiac boasts an average home price of $97,900. This isn’t just for single bedroom places, either. It’s entirely possible to score a modern, single story house with two bedrooms for $85,000, or a four-bedroom two bath Victorian style house for $75,000. Utilities, housing, and goods and services are all below the national average cost, putting the entire cost of living 14% below average. This small city of 13,000 is similar to Pekin when it comes to real estate prices and flair for the arts. Like Pekin, Pontiac has over twenty murals painted on building sides around town that depict historic events of the town as well as an International Art Museum. Places like the Route 66 Hall of Fame Museum and the Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum keep this place grounded in its local roots.[adrotate group=”3″]
