Junction City Among Best Places for Homeownership
NerdWallet considers availability, affordability and growth
San Francisco, CA (June 19, 2014) – NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study to find the best places for homeownership in Kansas – and Junction City made the list.
As renting becomes less affordable, NerdWallet wanted to give potential homebuyers a look at the current housing market. NerdWallet based its rankings on the following criteria:
· Homeownership rate
· Selected monthly homeowner costs
· Monthly household income
· Population growth
NerdWallet ranked Junction City as the 14th best place in Kansas for homeownership. The area has a homeownership rate of 50.2%, and median monthly homeowner costs are $1,267. Junction City grew by 11.6% between 2010 and 2012, making it the fastest-growing community of the top 20.
Other cities that made the list include Eudora and Prairie Village. Read the full study online.
