Brutus over there at ElPasoSpeak alerted me to this list from Canadian data muncher Point2Homes that ranks housing affordability in some major markets in North America. And guess what? El Paso has some of the most affordable.
That’s right. El Paso is right there between Columbus, Ohio, and Jacksonville, Florida. We’re four bumps up from Culiacan, Sinaloa, and six up from our sister city, Juarez.
That’s right. When it comes to affordability, El Paso is right there with the rest of the cities in North America that are losing their allure. Facing declining fortunes. Spiraling down the toilet.
The most affordable city in North America is Detroit, Michigan. Only Indianopolis, Indiana, and Jacksonville, Florida, stand between El Paso and Detroit in the U.S. rankings.
What happened? El Paso used to be such a nice place.
