5 Places With Good Jobs and Cheap Housing

AAA

Finding an area with good jobs and cheap housing is difficult in today's economy, but not impossible. For years, both coasts have boasted employment growth, while the Midwest remained stagnate. The Southwest with its moderate climate grew faster than any section of the country. The fast growth however, has left a glutted housing market, and fewer opportunities for new jobs.

One of the best areas for very affordable homes is Deerfield Beach, Florida. But for those still working, the job market is not as inviting, as most employment opportunities are in the service sector. (For some other suggestions, see Top 10 Cities For A Career In Finance.)

For the best job opportunities, Bethesda, Maryland has seen a job explosion is recent years. It has one of the highest median family incomes in the nation. There are many opportunities for jobs here but housing can be very expensive - especially considering it is less than an hour's commute to Washington, D.C.

Combining several lists: the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Forbes, CNN, and Sperling's Best Places, these are the top five cities for both job opportunities and affordable housing.
