I get to share some good news with you. Arkansas is one of the top 10 states in this important category.

The state I call home is listed as the third best place in the United States when it comes to affordable housing. Did you know that the tourist industry in Arkansas pulled in over 5 billion dollars last year? The video specifically lists Texarkana as one of the best places to look for affordable housing in the state. The average price of a home in Arkansas is $149,000.

2. Mississippi

Mississippi is coming in at number 2. The job market is just ok, most of those jobs are in agriculture. I have only traveled to the state a few times and it is beautiful but is not the friendliest of places to visit. The average home in Mississippi is only $141,000.

1. West Virginia

West Virginia is in at number one. The reason? The cost of living is cheap, really cheap, but the job market is pretty bad. The average home price in Virginia is $118,000.

So there you have it not only is housing in our area cheap, but the Youtuber actually mentions Texarkana as one of those best places to buy a home in the entire state of Arkansas.

Check out his video right here. He mentions Texarkana at the 9:19 mark.
