I think if i had to narrow it doesn, the midwest (WI, IL, IN, OH) would hold more lower cost options than coastal areas, while still being in proximity of some jobs.
The Midwest also holds the highest violent crime rate cities.

Coming from Tokyo, many cities will seem cheap to you. That term is so relative. Little to no snowfall? Raleigh, Charlotte, Dallas, Phoenix. We are from NYC originally and those cities always appealed to me for climate and affordability.

Cheap usually equates to a bad economy, poor job market/wages and or little expectations of prospects improving.

Safe usually is the flipside of isolation and boring.

If you have a job paying $200,000 a $500,000 house will be cheap. If you make $50,000 that same house will be really price. Do you mean cheap relative to salary or relative to other cities?

What kind of work do you do? Any other considerations?

Any small town in flyover country or cattle country. If the neighborhood is full of wheat fields or pastures full of cattle, any smaller town will be safe and very likely to be cheap. The more conservative the area is, the safer the little towns will be.


Big cities that are both safe and cheap, not so much. Small towns in the southeast, not so much, although some of them are cheap. Anything on the west coast is not going to be cheap and safety is so-so in the smaller towns, depending on the homeless and drug situation.


Both house prices and crime stats can be found online for just about any place in the USA.

Crime stats say otherwise.
