Looking for affordable places to retire?

The good news is that there are plenty of affordable places to retire. Affordability is usually a function of cost of living, housing prices, and taxes. In general the south, the Midwest, any anywhere far from the coast is fairly affordable. Housing prices have also been erratic in many parts of the country, which leads to affordability opportunities. Most of south Florida real estate, for example, has been hammered since 2006. The same is true in parts of Arizona further out from Tucson and Phoenix. There are bargains in those regions now that didn’t exist just a few years ago.
