Penn Hills, PA looks like something I might enjoy, but the rest? No thanks.

No wonder they are all cheap places. Most people aren't dying to move to Ohio or the suburbs of Buffalo, NY. Anytime you have a very desirable place it will never be cheap.

Cincy burbs are priced low because it's a dull kind of place. Maple Heights is not the nicer side of Cleveland (old inner suburb, not total ghetto, but surrounded by it). Penn Hills is a nice area, stayed in a hotel there last time I was in the Pittsburgh area.

Is affordable housing a euphemism for low-income housing?

I am wondering if that list isn't meant for investors?

I don't think so, consider the source. Money magazine is not concerend with low income people. I assume they are using the term in the conventional sense: in which cities can people with incomes that are average for the city get the cheapest housing. In other words, these are places where the ratio of income to housing prices is the highest.

And not because places like Cheviot are older 'burbs whose housing stock consists almost exclusively of 1,000 square foot houses, 2 or 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, smaller lots, etc.? Those kinds of houses -- and North College Hill and Cheviot have them by the boatload -- are rarely selling for more than $100,000. The only way a two-bedroom, one-bath Cape Cod will sell for much more than that is if it's in Hyde Park.
