Happy Saturday!

What are some affordable cities with growth potential in America to purchase a home?

I recently read an article on Forbes' list of America's Fastest-Growing Cities" Austin, Denver, San Jose dominated the list but its out of my budget.. Can you suggest more affordable cities with fastest growing metro areas in America in terms of population and economy? (I dont mind the weather)

Thanks!

Why do they have to be the fastest-growing, population-wise?

Dallas - Ft Worth and Houston come to mind. Both are affordable compared to most places.

meaning that I dont want to buy a house in cheap markets like Detroit where the median worker only makes 70% the national average and where the unemployment rate is 28% higher than the rest of the country.

I am looking for stable regional economies and affordable housing to buy a home.

Raleigh, Charlotte, Atlanta, Salt Lake City & Nashville. All are rapidly growing and all are still affordable.

Thank you so much ...... and...I am sorry If it sounds confusing, I am brainstorming here, I am also open to move to a smaller city, it doesnt necessarily need to be a large metro area. A 170,000 up city is fine with me as long as the economy is somehow "stable"

Lincoln, Nebraska is a good option in that category.

I've heard only great things about the following smaller metros with rock-solid economies and fairly high growth:

Fargo
Des Moines
Grand Rapids
Madison (WI)
Omaha
