Which states have a low housing values and low unemployment rates.
-North Dakota: Especially Fargo and Grand Forks
-South Dakota: Sioux Falls (although wages are low)
-Minnesota: Rochester (high wages, low housing values but this mainly because of the medical facilities they have there) the rest of Minnesota is really not a low housing value state
-Nebraska: Omaha (low unemployment rate, low housing values)
-Iowa: Des Moines, Western Iowa (low unemployment rates, low housing values, good employment growth) Eastern Iowa is more rust-beltish.
Overall, I would say the Great plains states would probubly fit in the criteria best when it comes to very low unemployment rates and low housing values. Energy is fairly cheap also on the great plains as coal is fairly close also.
The only thing about the Great Plains states is the wages (Bureau of Economic Analysis) are some of the lowest in the country regionally especially in the rural areas and smaller metro areas although areas such as Des Moines, Omaha and Rochester are fairly close to the national average.
On the Bureau of Labor statistics website it also seems like Oklahoma's metropolitan areas have fairly low unemployment rates at times and it is a fairly cheap state tend to live in. Although it seems Oklahoma's unemployment rate tends to be slightly higher usually then alot of the plains states however.
