Burlington VT is very cheap? I thought that its overall COL was just above the national average.

According to Forbes some of the cities with the lowest housing costs are in Ohio (Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Akron, and Toledo) and Michigan (Detroit, Warren, Grand Rapids). Other cities such as Syracuse, NY and Pittsburgh were mentioned as well.

The term "cities" is pushing it with most all of the places listed having populations well under 100K and not a whole of employment options for transplants one could pretty much guess.

How big does a city need to be to qualify? The cities north of Milwaukee are cheap.

Flint and Toledo are very cheap, you can buy houses on ebay. Detroit, too.

Any city with a long winter will be relatively cheap, as a rule.

NYC, Chicago, Philly, DC, Boston...all pretty expensive. But cities like Buffalo and Pittsburgh offer a pretty good value. Minneapolis as well.

Any city in NY has high taxes, Pittsburgh would be a better choice I think.

Chicago is fairly cheap. NYC/Philly and DC have long winters? To Miami maybe. In NYC there have been years they didn't get their first snow until January and it was well melting in February.
